Description

The trail begins on the east side of Little Park Road near the top of the Tabeguache Trail. The singletrack winds along, climbing steadily towards the Little Park Road trailhead passing first the Gunnector trail on the left, then a short connector back to Little Park Road on the right.

Cross a doubletrack leading back to the trailhead and begin descending. The trail can be a bit rutted, some proceed as ability permits.

Pass Gunnector again on the left and descend to a valley bottom. Wind along the bottom, climb a hike-a-bike and continue rolling to Little Park Road. Cross the road, and continue past the Holey Bucket trail to the terminus on Clunker.

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.

Technical white-knuckle singletrack with a touch of flow, Gunny Loop features nice drops, jumps, and some occasional rim exposure. Not to be missed! 5.8mi — 1h 16m
