Palisade Rim Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Palisade Rim Trail is best suited for advanced to intermediate riders. The trail should be ridden with caution, as it requires advanced bike handling skills as well as strength and physical endurance. Set in the small town of Palisade, just east of Grand Junction, the Palisade Rim Trail provides mountain bikers with a feeling of remoteness not often found in the more expansive and popular network of trails in the Grand Valley.

The entire route combines two loops and two out-and-back connector trails that deliver terrain that is technically challenging, extremely exposed, and adjacent to steep slopes and cliff edges."
