Trail Description
About this trail
The Kokopelli's Area Trail network could possibly be the best collection of trails in Colorado and maybe the entire southwest. Miles of super fine singletrack with amazing views makes Kokopelli's a World Class trails mecca. Most trails can be ridden in either direction EXCEPT Horsethief Bench and Rustlers. Trails ranging from easy to ultra-technical with some exposure in some sections. All around fun anyway you ride.

Review: Horsethief is a blast but the photos and videos of the drop down from Mary's do not do it justice. It is much gnarlier than I was expecting and extremely humbling after trying and failing to clean the entire section. The rest of the trail is a great mix of flow with technical sections mixed in and some great views of the Colorado River.

Review: I've ridden the Kokopelli Area trails many times and loved it every time. Beautiful scenery and the trails themselves are some of the best there are. Horsetheif Bench is great, but Moore Fun is my favorite.

Review: Awesome trail system. Well marked and spectacular scenery of the Colorado river canyon. Go as hard as you want, or as easy as you want. Love that crawl up (and down) on Horsethief.

Review: I just completed a Florida to Oregon road trip with rides in every state along the way and this place stands out. Several loops for all skill levels that can be tied together to ensure a great trip for everyone. Rustler's Loop is a great introduction to the area and has cool signage to help raw beginners learn tricks along the way. Mary's Loop has great scenery of the Colorado River. Horsethief Bench is often ridden in combo with Mary's has a definite hike-a-bike area for all except the elite immortals, but should not be avoided due to that short walk. Steve's Loop is fun and for tough trails you can continue onto Lion's Loop, Troy Built Loop, Mack's Ridge and return near the TH on Moore Fun. Bring plenty of water & snacks as you can easlily spend 4 hours if you desire.

Review: Had a blast on these trails. It was perfect timing after the rain and the trails weren't sandy and loose at all. The only part of any of the trails we rode that we didn't like was that there were a couple spots on the trails that could be marked a little better for those who are riding it for their first time. Other than that it is an awesome trail system with something for everyone.

Review: Great scenic trails. Most people opt to ride up Mary's to Horse-thief. Mary's is mostly double track to the horse-thief trail head.

Review: Love, love, LOVE this trail system. Even though 18 Road gets all the props, Kokopelli is my favorite trail system out here in Fruita. Why? One word.... Variety!! Kokopelli has it all. Rustler's Loop for beginners and it's also a great warm-up lap to prepare you of what's to come. When I take people new to "real" mountain biking to Fruita, I take them to Rustlers to show them what your bike (and you) are capable of. Then you're off to the Horsethief Bench area and all the connecting trails like Mary's Loop, Steve's and if you want to really work...Moore Fun!!
