This loop is not a maintained trail but can be followed by walking up the Yampa River from Echo Park to the mouth of Sand Canyon, up that drainage until it opens out, and then across open bench land to the Echo Park road in lower Pool Creek Canyon. The route may be impassable during high water on the Yampa River (generally late May to late June). Some scrambling is required in Sand Canyon.

Directions: From Dinosaur, Take US Hwy. 40 2 miles east of Dinosaur, CO. Turn left on Harper's Corner Rd and the Dinosaur National Monument Headquarters. Follow this road about 20 miles to turn right on Echo park Road follow signs to a left just before you reach the river.

Distance: 6 to 8 miles
