Description

The Lunch Loops area, located adjacent to the Colorado National Monument, is a fantastic biking complex with trail choices for all ability levels.

The majority of trails in the Lunch Loops area are targeted to intermediate and advanced riders. There is one recent addition to the area, the Kid’s Meal Trail, which was built with beginners in mind. Suggested rides in the area include Pet-A-Kees, Eagle Trail, Andy’s Loop, Holy Cross and Windowmaker.

Views from the Lunch Loops area are quite good toward the mesas of Colorado National Monument. Trails in this complex are signed, though a good trail-map is a real plus here due to the sheer number of trails.

Grand Lake Grand Lake Grand Lake
Rocky Mountain National ParkAt the edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, Grand Lake is the deepest natural lake in Colorado, dipping to 265 feet. Fed by high mountain runoff, the lake is clear and pristine. In the summer, you can rent a boat, bring your own or simply enjoy the gentle lapping of the waves from the sandy shore. Grand Lake connects with Shadow Mountain Lake via a canal, and just down the road is Lake Granby, the second largest body of water in Colorado.
