Fun flowy sections separated by some very technical rocky obstacles make Gunny Loop a popular trail. Be prepared for occasional sandy spots, 2' ledges, steep ramps, and some aggressively inclining single-track that may have you hiking your bike. Observe the cut-off routes to adjust your ride for time or mileage.

       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!

       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.

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