Mountain Biking Chutes and Ladders

Whoa! We hit this one on the way back from Moab and it was just what the doctor ordered. Smooth singletrack with very little effort required. The trail gradually makes its way up to the bookcliffs. At the cliffs, you'll see why this trail is called chutes and ladders. A few nice drops and switchbacks and then the very sweet ride back down the hill. The scenery may be sparse but the jumps and twists in the trail make up for it. There are tons of trails here where you would least expect them and they are well worth the trip.

Getting there
From Fruita, take Aspen St. East about 4 blocks to Maple St. Turn left (North) on Maple. Go about 3 miles and turn right onto 3/10 Rd. Go to the T intersection and hang a left. Take this road about 6-7 miles to the (unmarked) parking lot on the left. Note: this road becomes a dirt road about 3 miles down. This trail starts directly across the road from the parking lot (singletrack) and heads down to a dried up lake. Follow the trail north as it parallels the road.
