Grand Junction, home to the Colorado National Monument, has a solid network of trails. The most well-known trails, called the Lunch Loops, are challenging, and endlessly fun.

Grand Junction and Fruita are only a few miles apart, so you don't even have to choose. Make sure to visit the Lunch Loops the next time you come to camp in Fruita. It's worth the detour!

Grand Junction tourism has an extensive website that's helpful for many of the other things you need for your trip when you're not on the bike: visitgrandjunction.com.
