Chutes & Ladders Professional Reviews and Guides
"Chutes & Ladders is a long-time favorite of Fruita mountain bikers. Recalling the ups and downs of the old childhood board game, Chutes & Ladders offers a technically rolling romp over some of the best slickrock outside of Moab, Utah. The ride offers many short climbs and descents over slickrock and through sand. It delivers one of the smoothest and narrowest sections of singletrack in all of Colorado. After negotiating the rocky terrain of the Book Cliffs, the tireless rider is rewarded with a fast and straight singletrack shot through a cow pasture- smooth as butter. Terrain: Singletrack. The terrain rolls over hilly slickrock and sand and through open pasture."
--Stephen Hlawaty, Mountain Biking Colorado (Falcon Guides).
"This trail has some great singletrack riding; one of the better rides in the Book Cliffs area. The fun factor on this ride is very high. The trail traverses along the lower part of the Book Cliffs and follows a wandering line in and out of several dry washes. Do this ride. This trail is located 8 miles north of Fruita. Tread: 6.9 miles on singletrack and 0.2 mile on doubletrack."
--Bob D'Antonio, Mountain Biking Grand Junction and Fruita (Falcon Guides).
