Description

The Edge Loop is about as unique a ride as one can find in the Fruita area. Covering over 30 miles of ground, the Edge Loop gains almost 4000 vertical feet over fourteen miles and requires a 30 foot rappel off a waterfall at its end. Quite a day by most bikers’ standards!

Views of the Valley Basin and off to the Rocky Mountains are spectacular from the Edge Loop and riders will enjoy a multitude of neat rock features and desert flora along the way. Riders should check with local bike shops regarding the condition of the fixed line used for the rappel and any additional equipment needed to descend this feature. A map is a key piece of equipment on this ride. Make sure you have one!

The Edge Loop is multi-use so riders may encounter other users and should follow right of way protocol when meeting other groups. It is suggested that riders frequent this area in the early morning during the summer months due to heat. In addition, riders should be prepared with a stocked repair kit and a first aid kit. The Edge Loop is a very long trail and riders are encouraged to bring extra water and food for the journey. Familiarity with rappel devices and techniques for safe belay are also a must on the Edge Loop.
