Description

The Uncompahgre Plateau Trail is a long but pretty stretch of backroad that goes up and over the Uncompahgre Plateau. The road heads west out of Montrose and joins the Rim Road, with scenic views from the lip of the plateau, before passing over Columbine Pass at 9,120 feet. From there, it descends down through the canyons on the north side of the plateau and ends up near Grand Junction.
