Explore the very best of the world-class trails in the Grand Valley with Boneshaker Adventures!!
Let us design a custom ride just for you based your riding style, focus, and goals. We at Boneshaker Adventures grew up with the trails in the Grand Valley, even building many of them, so we know a thing or two about choosing the right trails for the ride. Ride with us and ride the best!
lunch loops - tabeguache- butterknife - the ribbon
Endless loop combinations are possible at this stacked loop trail network. You can go out for a quick spin or ride the Grand Junction Off Road 40 mile course and everything in between. The trails in this network are on a whole, more technical than the trails in other parts of the Valley making for very physically demanding riding, especially at pace. Although, there have been a lot of trail building recently to expand the easier trail options. Must-Rides- Gunny Loop, Holy Cross, Butterknife
18 Road/north fruita desert
Smooth (for the desert), rolling terrain with trails that encourage you to push it! One of the only areas where a factory sponsored pro and a tike on a push bike can have fun on the same trail! A few exposed ridgelines (Joe's Ridge, Zippity Do Da), super fun "flow" trails like PBR, Kessel Run, and Mo Joes, and a smattering of excellent XC trails like Chutes and Ladders, Frontside, Western Zip. Even a couple of long endurance rides like Sarlac and the Edge Loop! Not to be missed!! There is a paid BLM campground makes a fantastic bascamp for this zone.
Awesome network on the cliff tops and bluffs overlooking the Colorado River. Very scenic. The trails are more moderate than the Lunch Loops area but more technical than 18 Rd. and are some of the best in the valley. I like to do a spring training ride called the KokoLoco out here which links up every mile of singletrack in the network for about 38 miles and 4,700 vert. feet of the best suffering on two wheels you've ever experienced. Other must-rides are Mary's+Horsethief Bench & Mack Ridge+Troy Built. If you want to test your metal, give Moore Fun a go. It's the most technically advanced trail I've ever ridden.
Palisade rim trail & More to come!
Limited mileage but very high quality riding and tremendous views. Steep, technical, punchy climbing up to the top and then great terrain for pacing and intervals (consistent pitches). Total loop distance, 9.3 miles. Stay tuned for more exciting trail development on this end of the valley, specifically, the Palisade Plunge!!
This zone straddles the UT/CO state line and offers some great options for endurance rides. A popular spring training ride out here for the locals is Zion Curtain+Western Rim+Trail #2. It's about 30 miles and 3,600 vert. ft. with options to stretch it over 50 miles with add-ons. The best stand alone trail out here is Western Rim. Some of the best views in the region can be found on this trail as it traverses a slickrock bench just above the Colorado river with views all the way to Moab.
