The Zion Curtain Trail, located in the Rabbit Valley area to the south of Fruita, features ridgeline singletrack riding with amazing vistas of the surrounding desert landscapes.
The Zion Curtain, located close to the Utah-Colorado Border and thus the name, has short climbs followed by technical downhill riding along the exposed rim of a mesa. Views from the trail include the Colorado River and the La Sal Mountains, grazing the sky at over 12,000 feet, in the distance.
The Zion Curtain trail does take some navigation and a trail map is a key piece of equipment here.
Can cut length if necessary.
Time To Allow:
While riding any trail system it is a great idea to include a repair kit and first aid kit. The Zion Curtain is a multi-use trail and hikers and other trail users may be seen along the way. Please be considerate on the trails and understand right of way protocol. The Zion Curtain is a desert ride and mid-summer temperatures can be scorching. Riders should start early, plan appropriately and always bring extra water when riding in the desert.
From Fruita take I-70 west to Loma. Turn south once off the freeway and follow the signage to Kokapelli’s Loops area. Park and ride from designated parking. Remember the trail map.
