This post is part of a Throwback Thursday series featuring trip reports that we haven’t had a chance to write about until now! Look for them on Thursdays!
I’ve been biking in Fruita for over two decades, yet there are a few classic rides I have not checked off the list. The Zion Curtain finally got it’s check mark last fall. This ride is a little less technical than some others near the Colorado River. But, that doesn’t detract from the fun. Not to mention, a good chunk of his ride is actually located in Utah. Unlike the Interstate though, you won’t be finding signs at the border.
I ended up riding this loop with my friend Larry.
The trail was very cross-country, but still had it’s own flow with a fun descent.
We liked this move.
The ride was rewarded with a Cold Snack of the Montucky sort. I mean, who doesn’t love that can!
Overall opinion? Zion Curtain was fun and I’d do it again. But the trails out of Loma are generally more fun. And the queen of Rabbit Valley is the Western Rim Trail. Still, Zion Curtain should be a trail on your list to check out in the Fruita area.
Want to do this ride yourself?
Here’s a map! We did the Zion Curtain loop in a clockwise direction. We took some wrong turns a few different times, which is pretty obvious on the map. The loop is about 19 miles without wrong turns.
