Uncompahgre RiverWay Trail

Great Ride

June, 2022 by b0ssc0

I rode the southern portion of the trail last week. I started in Frontier Field. The trail going through downtown isn't well marked a bit confusing. I took the trail to Ridgway State Park and back. A really awesome ride along the river.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Great Trail

June, 2022 by b0ssc0

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!

Colorado Riverfront Trail

more than 22 miles

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.

Uncompahgre RiverWay Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2020 by scott.oplinger.5

I rode the northern section of about 7-8 miles. The surface is concrete in good condition. It goes through several parks and crosses a couple secondary roads, so it was sometimes confusing. It follows the Uncompahgre River closely part of the way. When connected to the southern section this will be a great route.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Nice Improvements Recently Made

June, 2020 by acewickwire

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.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

Entertaining!

May, 2020 by masonbunce

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!

Uncompahgre RiverWay Trail

Nice trail better when completed

June, 2018 by acewickwire

Rode both the south (Ridgway) and north (Montrose) ends of trail. Liked both ends. South end is longer with extension into Ridgway SP (no fee for bikers). Section is state park is mostly paved with a couple sections of single track. The north end of single track is a bit more challenging with steep hill and cliff side exposure. The north end of trail is paved through the river bottom area with lots of trees and park area. Will be great once the two portions are connected. South end has a nice short side trip to Dennis Weaver Memorial Park.

Colorado Riverfront Trail

I Ride This Trail Often

January, 2018 by acewickwire

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.
