Site Overview: The Lunch Loops Trail System is in Grand Junction between Monument Road and Little Park Road. This trail system consists primarily of trails rated “more difficult” to “very difficult”, and also offers two trails: Free Lunch and Pucker-Up designated for downhill mountain biking only (one-way, no hiking). Adjacencies to the Colorado National Monument and Bangs Canyon allow the Lunch Loops Trail System to provide spectacular views on challenging terrain.   The trails are open to mountain biking and hiking only, and receive high use from both mountain bikers and trail runners, and dogs are a frequent occurence in the area.
