Trail Description
About this trail
Suggested route: Clockwise loop. Trail is a great warm up for Mary's Loop/Horsethief Bench but offers really great cliffside views of the Colorado river. There is also signage during the ride that helps educate new riders about ethics and skills of mountain biking.

Review: This is a really fun and easy loop that the whole family can enjoy. You can get some fun speed. If you don't like the ending to this loop, than you do not like mountain biking! It is one of the funnest and flowiest trails out there.

Review: Rustlers is one of the funnest beginner trails in the Grand Valley. The trail will give the new rider every aspect of terrain to practice on. Start out with the short but steep climb and proceed counter clockwise. The final downhill is fast and fun.

Review: It's rated as green, but it's not boring. It also has cool signs to help newbies on riding technique. It is very fun and has great views of the river.

Review: We rode this a couple times just to check it out. Kinda fun, but watch out for small (6 year-old) kids. It's for beginners and you shouldn't ride it on a weekend unless you want to get smoked by said 6-year-olds.

Review: Great warm-up or sweet ending to a hard day of riding on area trails. Perfect place for a beginner, or to try out new equipment. Awesome views of the colorado river make this a must ride for any level of rider.

Review: Quick beginner ride at the Kokopelli trail system. This trail has proven to be fun for any level rider... Set up for beginners with sign posts occasionally on the trail to provide tips, the trail gives new riders a taste of what mountain biking can become. If you are advanced, do not shy away from this trail. With great views, the occasional little challenge and a fun and quick descent back down into the parking lot, this trail is well worth the 35 minutes it takes. If for nothing else, use it as a warm up for the spectacular Mary's Loop whose trail head is just up the trail system road.

Review: I find Rustler's Loop to be a nice tack on trail at the end of a longer ride rather than a warm-up. Flowy section at the start that you can blast thru a couple of gentle up and down sections in the middle and a fast end. One of the few trails in the winter that is very ridable on snowpack (a great time and helps bridge the gap until spring riding starts).

Review: A great family ride or a great ride. Very basic trail with enough fun factor for the advanced and a great experience for the novice. Fun for all and all for fun. Good warm up ride if you are riding Horsetheif Bench and beyond or want to tack on some miles at the end of a tour of Kokopelli's.
