The Kokopelli Loops mountain biking trails system in the mountain biking mecca of Fruita, Colorado is one of our favorites. The system offers something for riders of all levels, from beginner to advanced. Non-riders can also enjoy this system by hiking it while their family/friends mountain bike. If you are looking for excellent riding and/or something for non-riders to do while visiting Fruita, do not miss this system.
Kokopelli Loops Mountain Bike Trails
Kokopelli Loops sits in a beautiful setting in the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area. The terrain ranges from flowy singletrack to gnarly rock, depending on the trails you choose. Many of the trails follow ledges above the Colorado River and the contours of side canyons. All of the riding is fun and riders can choose their trails based on their experience level, with a variety of easy, intermediate, difficult, and very difficult trails to ride.
Kokopelli’s reputation is one of being a must ride in Fruita. With great beginner’s trails such as the Rustler’s and Wrangler loops, renowned intermediate loops such as Mary’s Loop and the famous Horsethief Bench Loop, and outstanding advanced trails such as Mack Ridge, Lions, and Moore Fun, Kokopelli’s reputation is well deserved. When these trails are combined with beautiful and dramatic scenery, it is clear that Kokopelli offers bucket list mountain biking.
Why You Shouldn’t Miss Riding Kokopelli Loops Mountain Biking Trails
Kokopelli Loops mountain biking trails offer world class desert riding. The system has trails ranging from beginner to advanced, so the system can offer something to everyone in your group and all will finish the day with big grins. Additionally, Kokopelli is only about an hour northeast of Moab, Utah, another world class mountain biking area. If you are biking in Moab, I highly recommend you make the trek to ride Kokopelli. Better yet, plan on a couple of days in Fruita/Grand Junction to check out a few systems, including Fruita’s 18 Road system and Grand Junction’s famous Lunch Loops system. We are willing to bet that if you ride in Fruita, you will want to come back again and again. We do!
