McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area is one of BLM Colorado's most diverse desert recreation areas.

The area also offers mountain biking at Mack Ridge/Kokopelli and off-highway vehicle trails in Rabbit Valley. The Trail Through Time, adjacent to an active dinosaur quarry, provides visitors a chance to learn about fossils and paleontological finds in the area. Find outstanding hiking and horseback riding at Devil's Canyon and Pollock Bench trailheads off of Kingsview Road outside of Fruita. The area is home to mountain lions, desert bighorn sheep, elk, deer, eagles and collared lizards.
