Ribbon Trail For Mountain Biking

The 156th most popular mountain bike trail in Colorado.

Southwest of Grand Junction, the Ribbon Trail is a 3.1 mile mountain bike trail with 2,150 feet of vertical. The Ribbon is a challenging ride with plenty of cliff exposure and rolling slickrock through large ponderosa pines.

To reach the mountain biking trailhead for the Ribbon Trail from Grand Junction, head west on Broadway. Turn left on Monument Road. Then, turn left on D Road. Near the end, turn right on Little Park Road. Continue west on Little Park Road for 3.5 miles. The trailhead is on the left. While the Ribbon Trail is located across the road on the north side, most bikers ride up the road (5 miles with 2,000 feet of climbing) to the upper trailhead and then descend back to the lower trailhead.

Overall, Ribbon Trail is the 156th most popular mountain bike trail of all 175 mountain biking rides in Colorado.
