A new loop has been added to the Highline Lake hiking and biking trails Engle Loop adds approximately .9 miles to the 18 Hour Trail, bringing the trail's total length to 6.42 miles. The 18 Hour Trail is the trail loop around the park that is used for the 18 Hour Race that occurs every spring as a part of the Fruita Fat Tire Festival. The new portion of single track crosses several gullies and in places should be reminiscent of Prime Cut at the 18 Road area north of Fruita. Click here for a map of the 18 Hour Trail, ​including Engle Loop. Contact the Highline Lake Visitor Center at 970-858-7208 or email highline.park@state.co.us for more information.
