Fun downhill with some challenging/techy/moderate risk sections I definitely had to hike my bike, but overall a fun trail with lots of opportunity to session the harder stuff. Lots of fun alt lines as well.

Avoid gunny loop and lemon squeeze and it’s a great time

Probably the best trail in the Lunch Loops area…just don’t ride from the Lunch Loops main parking lot…not really worth it.

This was a fun downhill black with great views. Trail is well maintained. Keep your eye out for the cross about midway on the trail on your left!

One of my favorites in Grand Junction and Fruita area! The top is super flowy, fast, then the bottom has some techy spots that test your skills. Great trail and is a must do for sure.

Yes there are some technical features but this trail is intuitive. Just a black diamond imo. That doesn’t mean it’s any less fun though. This was my favorite little section in the entire lunch loops area (of the 16 miles I rode).

One of the premier trails in the Lunch Loops Trail Network. From super rocky sections, some fun rock rollers, to high speed corners and an amazing steep section to end it. Don't miss this one!
