Harpers Corner Road – May 31
We drove the scenic Harpers Corner Road in the center of the park (click to see map) to the Echo Park overlook, then hiked the mile long trail to the high point. What a vista! We could see the Bench Road (which we motorcycled several days ago) disappearing into the far distance and over the ridge toward our previous camping site. We looked down 2500 feet to see Echo Park, the campground we rode the motorcycles to at the base of Steamboat Rock. We could also see the Green river flowing south and the Yampa river flowing west to where they meet, hidden behind Steamboat Rock, then the Green river continuing around the base of the long, narrow Steamboat Rock.
