TBT: Loma Kokopelli Loops (10 Oct 2017)

(Last Updated On: October 25, 2018)

This post is part of a Throwback Thursday series featuring trip reports that we havenโ€™t had a chance to write about until now! Look for them on Thursdays!

October is the magic time for the desert. Temperatures are usually perfect – 60’s or 70’s in the day, and not too cold at night. Living in Colorado, I feel incredibly lucky to have access to some of the nations highest peaks, yet only a few hours drive from some of the best desert around. The public lands around Fruita offers some fantastic mountain biking, and the Kokopelli Loops out of Loma are among my favorite.

Last year, my friend Natalie and I spent some time riding the majority of trails in the Kokopelli Loops area within a single day. We combined Horsethief, Mary’s Loop, Steve’s Loop, and Moore Fun and gathered a collection of photos along the way. After all, we were riding along the scenic canyon cut by the Colorado River…

The good news… even though ski season has begun, desert riding is far from over. So, get out to the desert and ride! And don’t forget the flip-flops ๐Ÿ™‚

Wanna do this ride yourself?
