Mountain Biking Mary's Loop / Horsethief Bench

*****   Add a review
#17 of 1,377 mountain bike trails in Colorado
#108 in the world

Suggested route: Start by climbing the jeep road along the rim for 2 miles till you come to a small gate on the left for horsethief. Suggested to hike-a-bike the first time down to the trail. At the bottom of the decent, turn left and ride the loop clockwise. Upon returning to Mary's Loop, ride left to continue on Mary's. At 8 miles, you can return to the parking area using the frontage road or continue left to ride Steve's Trail and a 12.5 mile return on the frontage road.

The network offers great fast singletrack, really technical sections and amazing views. A must ride in Fruita.
