We have done the majority of the trail.
I rode most of this trail last week, Grand Junction to Fruita and back. It's a beautiful bike path. There is one section that is asphalt and a bit rough, but the scenery really makes up for it!
My nephew and I just finished this trail April 7th, 2022. We started in Palisade and finished in Loma and we connected the trailheads by riding on the roads and ditch banks. It was altogether 32 miles. Great ride! Wish they would connect the whole thing because that would be awesome.
Love the scenic views, tunnel art and single tracks!!!!
Beautiful views along the Colorado River. Connections to parks, mountain bike trails, restaurants
Started in Fruita and turned around at Eagle Rim Park. A number of repairs and improvements have been completed since my last ride over that route. A section of the trail had been washed away by the river some time ago...that portion has new bank installed and new trail surface put in. The trail used to exit on to a residential street at Riverside Park, the park has been enlarged and what used to be a street is now a nicely done bike path through the park. In the Las Colonias park area huge improvements have been made, making this a very nice "water" park area along the river.
I also very much enjoy the "new" section of trail from Fruita to Loma. It is ridden much more frequently being closer to home. Check it out also.
This trail is a very beautiful trail with different sceneries of the lakes, trees, and the Colorado River! Because of COVID-19, I can’t go out much, but this trail has entertained me through these difficult times. It is long (so you can get exercise) and if you enjoy to explore, this trail gives you the perfect chance! I give this trail a 5 star review because there are so many different ways to go!
Love this trail. I cycle this trail regularly; at least 3-4 times per week.
I often ride this trail from Fruita into Grand Junction (Eagle Rim Park) and back. The first couple miles from Fruita are a bit boring as it is a straight shot and parallel to I-70 but after that it gets more interesting. Today lots of bikers and walkers, plenty of room for everyone. The section from Fruita into Grand Junction is the newest portion and the trail is nice wide concrete. The older section of trail is narrower and some asphalt. Still a nice ride. Many of the underpass sections have some nice art work on them. A few weeks ago a bobcat ran across the trail only a few feet in front of me. Another section of trail is being built going from Fruita west, I believe it will then connect to the Kokopelli Trailhead near Loma.
A nice and pleasant, flat ride especially if you keep your focus toward the river and not the usual urbanization or industrial influences or highway hijinks in the opposite view direction. Brief sections have less intrusive stuff and more natural beauty than others. Only climb of note is the short easy one to Eagle Rim Park where you can take a lap and do some tricks in the nice bike park there. There is a very good overlook of the entire Grand Junction valley there too.
There is some great public art, "graffiti-like", along the way too.
This area of Colorado can be exceptionally hot in the summer. But that means it can be really pleasant in the cooler months and very ride-able on nice winter days. Given the abundance of vegetation along the river course (lots of big Cottonwood trees), it would be spectacular in fall when the leaves are changing. Spring would nice too with it all greened out and likely lots of birds.
Judging from the other reviews, I don't think I rode the most scenic part of this trail in my out and back. One one hand, there are a few nice stretches along the river, but there is quite a bit of the trail that's close to the busy highway. The paved trail is in good shape and the ride is easy.
Looking forward to the new rest area, peach groves, shaded benches, not to mention a great view. Located near the new RV campgrounds. A nice ride or hike from Junction to Palisade.
