good trail. fun short downhill section at the end. not too steep for beginners.

a nice hike into a shallow canyon and out again. I rate it on the low end of moderate. nice view of Grand junction and Fruita. this is also be a good bike trail for the beginner to intermediate rider. very close to Grand junction.

This is a seriously fun trail for biking. Shuttle it!

Great beginner trail!

Enjoyable trail system

Great beginner to moderate skill trail. The views of the Colorado River and surrounding scenery is fantastic. It is a popular riding and running area, so at peak times it can be fairly busy, but everyone I’ve met has been respectful and polite.

Enjoyed the walk with my dog, saw lots of mountain bikers and had to keep a sharp eye behind me! Still a beautiful desert trail though, not difficult at all and was completed in 2 hours. Good view of the Colorado river halfway through.

Take a right up the gravel road right past mile marker 12. Lots of variety, great spot to mountain bike :)

Lots of up and amazing views. Definitely a technical hike. Be prepared to share with mountain bikes.

Beautiful trail that winds through the desert and leads to several river overlooks! It was a perfect short hike for the evening once the temperatures cool off.

fun for bikers and runners tad boring for hiking

took this for my first real mountain biking trail. It is marked with hints for newbies like me and the difficulty increases just enough to challenge new riders. the sights are beautiful! and the trail is a blast!!

I imagine it's a better trail for mountain biking. So so for hiking. Nice overlook of the Colorado River at one point.

Did this hike over Memorial Day 2016. Great trail, well marked, remember to take the dirt road just before the mile marker/address. Very dog friendly, watch for the coyotes. Recommend the full 4.7 miles.

More of a mountain biking trail than a hiking trail for sure. This is one of the trails I learned to bike on. Great for beginners (just technical enough to be challenging but not dangerous). The views from the canyon rim are hard to beat on bike trails.

You start with a small climb... a little rocky, but nothing too bad, then the trail winds across the canyon rim for several miles. Quite a fun trail!

Easy loop. Good for beginner/intermediates to get used to this type of trail. 4 stars for it's access to other trails. Also, the loop is more like 6.5 miles rather than the advertised 8.5 as AllTrails suggests.

This is a very fun trail with excellent views. Because this trail is rated as intermediate, I was caught off guard by the several hike-a-bike sections. But the rideable parts definitely live up to the intermediate rating.

This is a really fun loop, and pretty easy. But the best part is that it accesses many other excellent loops such as Horsethief, Steve's Loop, and Moore Fun.

Good trail. Mostly ridable with some tech sections. Anyone who can clean the entrance is my hero.
