Description

Zippety Do Dah is a must not miss trail for advanced and intermediate level riders in the Fruita area. Located in the 18 Road complex, the trail features a mix of challenging singletrack and double-track riding, with steep climbs and tight, obstacle-laden downhills.

Zippety Do Dah is a lot like a roller coaster ride with many steep uphills leading to steep downhills. There are exposed sections along this trail where riders are literally on the rim of the Book Cliffs. Views from Zippety Do Dah are outstanding with expansive vistas of the Grand Valley Basin. This trail can be shortened if necessary or mixed with other trails in the area. A trail-map is very handy here.
