Trail Description
About this trail
There are several trails in this network ranging from cruiser to some lung busting sprints. Most trails run up and down the cattle pastures while a couple run along the base of the Book Cliffs. Over all, these are the classics that made Fruita a destination.

Review: The trails were a great mixture of up and downs, but still offered a challenge to experienced riders, the flow was amazing and for the amount of people that were there, it seemed pretty empty, allowing for more speed and less time waiting or moving for people.

Review: It's been a long time since I have lived in CO and ridden these trails, but as another poster said, they are burned into my mind. The most fun I have even had on a mountain bike. Fast and flowy. Funn descents and gentle climbs. There are certainly more hard core riders than I am out there, and for them, the riding is not very technical, but for me the smile on my face was constant. Combining the Bookcliff trails with the Mary's loop trails makes for a great combination for a long weekend trip.

Similar Trail: Some of the trails in the Winter Park system have fast and flowy downhills with gentle climbs.

Review: Awesome trails. Fast and fun down hill with a mild climp back up. This place is as fun as a ski slope with no chair lift lines to wait for.

Review: Amazing Riding, fast and fun down hill riding. Pretty easy climp back up. As much fun as a ski slope with riding in both directions.

Review: FLOWY. The flow of this trail is unstoppable. Trails near the campground are very well marked. On the east side of the Trail System, near the eastern end of Chutes and Ladders the trails are very poorly marked. It's very easy to get lost out there. But the west side is awesome!

Review: Great well maintained trail system. Not as exciting as Kokopelli but good flowing downhill on Joe's Ridge and Zippety.

Review: Awesome trails all the way around and as others have mentioned there is something for everyone here. It is nice that there is a camp ground right there in the middle of all the trails for those who want to spend some time there. My wife and I now plan on heading back for a trip just to spend on these trails and let our boys hit some. Had a blast and will be back for sure.

Review: These trails are a lot of fun for those who are wanting flow. My two favorites here are Mojoes and PBR. Both of these trails are downhill traffic only and offer small Doubles, tabletops and rollers plus some nice berms. The beauty of 18 rd is it caters to all skill levels, PBR for example, provides the opportunity to go fast and hammer through all the features but beginners can hit this trail at a lesser speed with no problem. I find myself riding PBR and Mojoes when I am craving dirt jumps but want to get a trail ride in. As far as classics like zippity and joes ridge, they are great too! Expect flow and speed from this whole trail system.
