Fruita, CO – In honor of President’s Day, Colorado National Monument will offer free entrance to all visitors on February 20, 2017.

Early spring is an excellent time to visit Colorado National Monument. This time of year visitors often will have beautiful vistas to themselves. The peace and quiet on the trails can provide a calming influence in a busy and hectic world. For a lucky few, a glimpse of a desert bighorn sheep ewe and her baby may be the highlight of a visit.


The National Park Service (NPS) is waiving entrance fees at all sites on President’s Day. To learn more about the many NPS sites commemorating America's presidents visit
