Clifton, Co., considered a suburb of Grand Junction, remains a small, unincorporated community. Sometimes overshadowed by the towns that flank it - the mountain biking hub of Fruita and the Western Slope's largest city, Grand Junction - Clifton is worth a stop. The western slope of Colorado is well known for its orchards and vineyard. Outside of town, seasonal fruit stands sell mouth-watering fruit grown on nearby farms.
Also near Clifton is the scenic Colorado River State Park, a diverse natural area ideal for hiking, biking, picnicking, fishing and swimming. The park includes scenic stops along the Colorado River - Island Acres, Corn Lake, Connected Lakes and Fruita. The unique trail system winds through tree lined riverbanks and offers great fishing and picnic spots. Island Acres, closest to the dramatic Colorado National Monument and the Grand Mesa, is great for camping along the river. In addition, the camping at Rabbit Valley, the last Colorado exit along I-70, is some of the best in the state. Enjoy mountain biking, four-wheeling and dinosaur bones just across the interstate from the camping areas.
