Kessell Run - TRAIL

Kessell Run - Trail, Fruita, Colorado

A narrow and fun trail that snakes back and forth from the bookcliffs. If you like getting some speed, fast turns, and a few jumps you'll love this short and easy trail.

This trail is a blast! Trail starts on the north side of the camping area. Ride up past the last toilet and you will see the trail head on your ride shortly thereafter. Definitely want to ride this trail north to south as that is the downhill route. Keep in mind that you will probably encounter bikers riding UP the trail (south to north) as the trail essentially leads to/from the camp ground/lower parking lot.
Trail has quite a few mild berms and small rolls. Stand up the whole time and just crush it. At the fork at the southernmost end turn left to head back to the lot and start the short and incredibly mild climb on the gravel road back to the campsite for beer and another run.

After 25 miles in the book cliffs we just gave this trail a try and it was like a shot of expresso! This was like a singletrack version of a mountain cross course (but not as steep)! Jump, drop, bermed railing turn, repeat, repeat, repeat! Pedaling to push your speed was how we did it and at the bottom our smiles convinced us to ride up and do it again!

This was my very first Fruita ride and it did not disappoint. Sure it's not very long and it's not hard at all but it's a fun ride. I don't think it would be possible to ride this and not have a good time no matter what you're experience level.
