Grand Valley

Grand Valley

When talking about Fruita and Grand Junction, CO trails you should really be talking about the Grand Valley.  The GV stretches from the base of the San Juan Mountains all the way to near Moab in a big crescent shape.

Bookcliffs / 18rd Trails

Bookcliffs / 18rd Trails

When asked what to ride first we always ask this question, “Do you want flow, or do you want scenery?”  Bookcliffs-18rd Trails has the flow. Perfect ribbons of single track with banked corners and poppy playful little jumps abound.  The tilt of the earth descending from the Bookcliffs makes for gentle climbs on the way up and the feeling of endless downhills that flow for miles on the way down. Need an adrenaline rush? Check out Zippity Do Dah. Nobody EVER forgets their first Zippity!

Kokopelli Trails

Kokopelli Trails

The Kokopelli Trail System is where beautiful scenery meets amazing riding.  This system of stacked single track loops is the start of the 142-mile trail that goes from Loma CO to Moab UT.  However, the beginning is packed with many days’ worth of single track riding just a few miles from the town of Fruita. Beginner to advanced single track are literally stacked on top of each cliff band.  Riding Mary’s Loop traverses one level while you look down on trails 100 ft below you on different bands of cliffs.

Lunch Loops

Lunch Loops

For those that want it challenging, you can’t beat the Tabaga…what?  (Just call it Lunch Loops) Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can clean all of Lunch Loops.  It’s a spider web of steep, gnarly, rocky single track that will keep the most advanced riders on their toes.  We love helping people plan rides in this trail system as those who don’t always end up climbing up the routes that are meant to be descended.  Which SUCKS!

Rabbit Valley

Rabbit Valley

When asked for a third day of riding we always ask. “Do you want something really technical, or something easier with amazing scenery?”  Rabbit Valley is a moto legal multi use area that straddles the Colorado and Utah border. The systems premier trail, Western Rim, winds along the bands of red cliffs above the Colorado River. It’s one of the most visually striking trails on the planet.

Palisade Rim

Palisade Rim

Palisade Rim is, in one word, STEEP!  You will not get a warm up on this technical gem of a trail. Between gasping breaths, you will wonder how the heck we even put a trail up there.  Is it all worth it?  Of course, because you get to come back down what you climbed up.  If you suffer from vertigo, be warned, this trail is not for you.  Serious exposure is no joke!
