Fruita Mountain Bike Vacation

With trails like Zippity Do Da and Western Rim, Fruita earns its name as one of the best mountain biking destinations in the country. Fruita has a little something for everyone. 18 Road Trails offers 40 miles of smooth riding for beginners looking to enjoy the scenery, while the Kokopelli trails offer intermediate and expert riders the opportunity to ride exhilarating singletracks with steep descents.

Experienced riders can demo the newest bikes at the local bike shops, or join a multi-day hut trip to experience the best trails that Fruita has to offer. Those planning a trip should also look into the schedule of Fruita’s Fat Tire mountain biking festival for live music and the chance to meet other riders from across the country.

As if the mountain biking weren’t enough, Fruita’s bars and restaurants offer great food and beers with a friendly local atmosphere.
