There has been an exciting effort to improve and expand the trail system in the North Fruita Desert for the past few years. The effort was restarted in the fall of 2010 and has resulted in the planning of five new trails within and outside of the Bicycle Emphasis Area of the North Fruita Desert and has been the result of hard work by a variety of user groups, individuals and businesses. Significant contributions from the City of Fruita and BLM have been important seeds for the project, but there is some important fundraising that needs to come together so trails can be built this spring.
This effort is a good example of a wide variety of organizations and individuals working together to help improve trails in the Grand Valley.
A new fundraising effort is in the planning stages and as part of that result, a new website has been created. FruitaSingletrack.com will be the online home for this effort initially and then will transition into an information and organization tool for continued efforts in the North Fruita Desert.
