We always seem to make it back to the Grand Junction/Fruita area. Probably because of all the areas we have ridden it has quite a bit of diverse riding making for an easy week of challenges.

unless you get a flat.

Typical terrain in the Lunch Loops area. Lots of technical up and down and all around.

They just put in a dedicated ‘free ride trail!’ Very forward thinking of the BLM!

Holy Cross


Curt’s Lane, the final section back to the parking lot.

Gunny Loop.

Bentonite Hill, pretty cool.

The Kokopelli area in Fruita also has a good cross section of riding from fast and flowing to technical climbing and descending..
