Ride the Grand Junction Off-Road. Choose from three different distance options of 15, 30 or 40 miles; each consisting of a carefully curated set of geologically mesmerizing (#mindblown) set of trails.

All participants will climb their way out of downtown Grand Junction onto the Uncompahgre Plateau, while connecting some of the area’s favorite technically challenging singletrack, double track, gravel roads and the occasional paved segment in the Lunch Loops and beyond.

During your three-day event visit to Grand Junction enjoy being submerged in the mountain bike industry. Mingle with the most bike-minded people you’ll ever encounter while appreciating the area’s wine country and feeling welcomed by its sincere appreciation for the outdoor enthusiast.

With an award in the form of an engraved stemless wineglass emblazoned with the distance you’ve finished, outstanding free live music, a cold beverage (gratis) from Four Peaks Brewing Company, and the comfort of its meandering main street engulfed by industry expo + beer garden waiting at the finish for all Off-Road participants…this is one finish line worth achieving.

The ‘Grand’ has a 93% finish rate. Technical? Yes. But attainable, too.

I had a blast on this trail, ridden in the "downhill" direction (west to east) on an eBike. This trail on a normal bike would be absolutely brutal. It has TONS of fun techy climbs, but dear god, after the 10th one you'd be thinking "Can't be many more!" and you'd be wrong. Great eBike trail!

As grandvalleydave noted this is a moto trail and there are better options for mountain bikes to choose from in the area. Some nice views and neat sections but give it a miss unless you've got a thing for riding moto trails on a bicycle.

I disagree with Jake. This is a great, somewhat technical mountain bike trail. I love it and I'm 75.

A favorite test piece for the Grand Valley and featured prominently in the Grand Junction Off-Road mountain bike event. Please note, that this is a motorized singletrack trail, built by motorcyclists and mountain bikers need to respect this fact.
