Ride this network after doing the lunch trails and Kokopelli network and wish I would've changed the order. Of the three networks, this isn't by far the most entry level. The trails marked "moderate" in this system are very generously marked that. If it's your first stop in Fruita and you wanna stretch your legs after a long car ride, goodness's place to stop. If you are camping with the family and want to take the kiddos "Mtn. Biking", great spot. The network has many small loops for the youngsters or you can of course, combine several loops to put in some good cross-country miles. The directional trails seem to be directional more for traffic flow than features, with the exception of PBR. The "must-do" sections, Zippity-doo-dah (cross country with very little climb or decent) Chutes and Ladders (rollers traversing several drainages), and PBR (decent flow trail with small manmade features) all offer a little different ride. If you want more of a challenge with fairly rated trails, head across the freeway to Kokopelli. In either case, be sure to stop in and see the folks at Over the Edge Sports and they'll get you all set up.
