lots and lots of curves. Basically a warmup for Marys loop. Nice singletrack to ride. Takes about 30-45 minutes to ride. Some parts do have slickrock. A much easier version than Bench is, yet good to get in a rythm there. Stay on the trail!!! Frustrating to see Bench and the trails at the Bookcliffs and Rabbit Valley getting wider and wider.

Summary:
This is a great trail to develope some skills. There is skill building information located along the trail with infomation such as climbing and desending hills, ethics ect... I always take newby's here for the first ride. There is lots of technical stuff in the area, but this is the best ride for learning or just a nice fun ride with the family.

Recommended Route:
At the trail head go left, you will have a fun down hill at the end this way, there is also a by pass on the top to go another lap, or take the same hill down that you came up.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Many trails in this area, mary's loop is next to this loop, and 16rd is not far away either.

Summary:
For an east coast rider of limited ability and not a youngster, this was an excellent get acquainted ride. I rode it clockwise, which is the recommended way. It has just a few short climbs, but has a sample of fast singletrack as well as some short singletrack. The CW ride has stops with short instructional plaques. The 3.6 mile trail is well thought out. Since I was the only one there last Monday, I rode it CCW as well and it was a hoot for this outta season, outta shape 56 year old. It is also adjacent to Mary's Loop and Horsetheif Canyon trails and makes a great warm up for the more experienced rider prior to riding the more demanding trails in this area. Suggest www.gjmountainbiking.com for trail discriptions in the Grand Junction area.

Summary:
First half of this ride is a complete waste of time. (If this is your first ride in Fruita, you'll wonder why you came here) However the second half picks up with a few ups and downs. Overall, if you're not a beginner, save your legs for other trails.

Recommended Route:
clockwise

Summary:
This trail's a good warm up or place for beginners to get their feet wet. There's not a ton of climbing but there's great singletrack. Good views and a good final descent. It was our first ride out there (from Chicago) and couldn't be a better first ride.

Recommended Route:
Consult trail map
