About The Colorado National Monument

The Colorado National Monument was established a monument by the President William Howard Taft in 1911 under the authority of the Antiquities Act. The difference between a National Park and a Monument is that a park is set aside by an act of congress, which after approval requires the president’s signature. A monument is established by presidential proclamation only.

In 1912 the Serpents Trail construction started in the Colorado National Monument and it was finished in 1921 being the first motorized route into the Monument. In 1931 the construction of the Rim Rock Drive began, and Civilian Conservation Corps workers arrived in 1933 to continue the project, along with the WPA and Local Experienced Men.

If you like rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, great photography and camping, the unique rock formations at Colorado National Monument offer a truly memorable experience.
