At Chasing Epic, we’re always giving our take on which trails are the best and which ones we recommend… but what do our clients think? We recently asked all of our spring clients to send us a brief email describing their favorite ride from their Chasing Epic trip. Below are a handful of replies we received- some are what we expected, and some are a little surprising. Take a look!
Little Creek Mesa (St. George) – Beautiful terrain with larger sections of slickrock and a mix of other surfaces, blooming wildflowers, perfect weather, fantastic views on the edge of the mesa and more confidence in the bike to ride the more technical areas of the trail. It all added up to one of the best days of riding.
For me the Gunny Loop trail (part of the Lunch Loops in Grand Junction) was the most fun trail of the trip. The climb was pretty mellow single track with great scenery and the downhill made it every bit worth it. The downhill was fast and flowy with a perfect mix of techy rock sections mixed in. The trail weaves left and right with banked corners and little built up rock jumps all over the place. All in all a trail that puts a huge smile on your face.
My favorite trail during our private trip to Fruita was Zippity Do Da. Letting go of the brakes and screaming down the steep hills was exhilarating.
