I started at the Ridgway park and rode the trail to Ridgway State Park. When the trail dead ends into a street, go right and you’ll hook up with the trail again. You can watch me go along this trail on our YouTube channel called Traveling Marlins.
This trail is really really nice. The concrete is wonderful. There is a small section of blacktop but is in the world to be replaced with concrete. The trail can be a little confusing but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to follow. Beautiful views along the entire trail. Most people follow the simple rules to make it nice for everyone to enjoy.
Trail is cement and wide. Very few people so we could ride as fast as we wanted.
We have done the majority of the trail.
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.
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!!!!
Gorgeous views everywhere! Trail is perfect for an easy ride or hike.
Beautiful views along the Colorado River. Connections to parks, mountain bike trails, restaurants
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.
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.
