Colorado National Monument Trail Map (NPS)

Directions:  The hike starts from the Upper Monument Trailhead, 3.8 miles east of the Visitor Center on Rim Rock Road.

This short hike brings you to an overlook of the Coke Ovens, an interesting group of rock formations and towers.  The trail descends the cliffs of the canyon and then levels out onto a ridge that takes you to the overlook.  The overlook, as well as the decent into the canyon, makes this short hike a must do for first time visitors.

It has a lip around the border of the top that keeps the coals on the cover, and keeps debris from tumbling down into the food when you lift it. It's additionally got legs on the base that lift the Dutch broiler up over any coals you need to put under. best dutch oven enamel,
