The downhill segment of the Gunny Loops is one of the best in the Fruita - Grand Junction area.

#followcamfriday on my favorite descent in the Lunch Loops system: Gunny Loop. This trail has everything from butter smooth high speed sections to super technical rocky zones.

Riding through the technical section on The Ribbon. This is more difficult than the horsethief bench drop in. However, totally walkable.
