Included / Not Included – campgrounds

Day 1: Fruita to Rabbit Valley

From Grand Junction, we’ll take a shuttle to the trailhead in Fruita, have a brief orientation, and begin a beautiful and moderately technical singletrack ride along the Colorado River. The Fruita Loops are widely recognized as some of the best singletrack anywhere. This trail has sections of short steep climbs and descents, creating a true mountain biking adventure. After lunch, we return to the Kokopelli Trail for a challenging yet scenic ride to our camp in Rabbit Valley.
26 miles. Camping: Rabbit Valley
Singletrack & Jeep road. No van support

Day 2: Rabbit Valley to Fish Ford

After a delicious breakfast we start the day with a rolling singletrack followed by a progressively harder and rougher jeep road along the low regions of the Colorado River plains. The views of the Manti La Sal Mountains linger in the distance for a truly incredible landscape. Most of the day is broken double track and fire road with one steep climb. Tonight’s camp is on the Colorado River.
32 miles. Camping: Fish Ford.
Doubletrack. Some van support.

Day 3: Fish Ford to Fisher Valley

Leaving our Colorado River camp, we ride sections of doubletrack and singletrack and a 10 mile cruise on the scenic “River Road” highway, which takes us to one of our favorite trails - Onion Creek. Tall red cliffs of Cutler sandstone and intriguing rock formations line the canyon. We spend the afternoon climbing up through the canyon crossing Onion Creek over 20 times. Our camp is in Fisher Valley, which borders the Manti-La Sal Mountains. From our camp, a short hike takes us to a well-hidden Anasazi ruin.
35 miles Camping: Fisher Valley.
Singletrack, Doubletrack & Jeep road. Some van support.

Day 4:Fisher Valley to Castle Valley

Today’s ride involves climbing over 4,000 feet to the high Manti-La Sal Mountains! From our vantage point atop the mountain, we’ll take a quick
look at real dinosaur tracks that seem to “walk” off the edge of a cliff! We’ll also have great views of Castle Valley and Fisher Valley. We’ll descend
into camp in Castle Valley, where a refreshing dip in a mountain stream awaits us.
38 miles. Camping: Castle Valley
Jeep road. Some van support.

Day 5: Castle Valley to Moab

Today’s ride is your reward for yesterday’s tough climb. We descend one of the most popular mountain bike trails in the world, the Porcupine Rim. Catching a quick short-cut, we bypass half of the uphill section for 14 miles of pure, fast downhill on very challenging doubletrack and singletrack. Views, of course, are unsurpassed as we view Castle Valley and the Colorado River from high above. We’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in Moab and then shuttle back at 2 p.m. to Grand Junction where we should arrive around 5 p.m.
