Colorado Mountain Biking Opportunities: Lunch Loops Trail

The Lunch Loops Trail System consists primarily of trails rated more difficult to very difficult. Two trails within the system, Free Lunch and Pucker Up are designated mountain bike only and open only to downhill travel. The trail system offers challenging terrain and spectacular views as it sits adjacent to the Colorado National Monument and Bangs Canyon. With challenging technical terrain this trail system will test advanced riders.

One of the Bureau of Land Management's "Backyard to Backcountry" treasures, information on the  Lunch Loop Trail--Gunny Loop was developed between IMBA and the Grand Junction, CO, BLM office to provide world-class riding experiences. IMBA's data on the trail includes elevations, ratings, current conditions, photos, and comments.
