"Spectacular views of the Colorado River and an excellent singletrack section make this one of the best moderate rides in the area.

This is a great introductory ride that should not be missed. This trail is located 6 miles west of Fruita. Tread: 1.3 miles on singletrack; 4.3 miles on doubletrack; 2.9 miles on gravel."

While certainly not very challenging, Mary's loop had some of the most incredible scenery we saw while visiting Moab & Fruita. Riding along the cliff's edge, overlooking the colorado river (w/ some nice fall foliage) was breathtaking. We doubled our ride time b/c we spent so much time taking pictures and videos. We paired this w/ Steve's trail for a little extra distance. I highy recommend this trail. Also- as you ride you get a great birds eye view on some of the other trails in this area that look super fun (Horse Thief & Russler)
