“A trail that offers everything. Technical descents, scary edges, burning climbs, and a unique landscape.
— Dave Grossman
Although not a loop itself, it is usually ridden by looping through the Lunch Loops and is referred to as a Andy's Loop. Andy's has been rerouted and changed over the years, but remains an incredible trail experience. With a steep descent into No Thoroughfare Canyon, the trail winds through a spectrum of soil colors and types and offers incredible technical challenges and easy bypasses.
The climb out of No Thoroughfare has been rerouted (Dec 2012) and is now a rideable climb although it does feature an exposed fall section that riders should approach with caution. After the climb, the ride down is so fun your face will hurt. And your legs will hurt on the climb up the switchbacks to the intersection with Eagle's Tail
. It is worth it, though. Andy's is amazing!
Andy's Loop was featured in the Grand Junction Off-Road event for the first four years.
