Trail Overview

Orange Loop is a fun, flowy single-track trail in the North Fruita Desert. Trails here are well marked with dozens of options. The trail starts out heading east on a Jeep trail. You enter Branch Wash by turning left on to trail 187. The wash is loose sand and rocks with hairpin turns. After exiting the wash, it is fast single-track with some steep descents. Be careful on the hill climbs because the trail can turn sharply at the crest of the hill.

Difficulty

The trail starts on an easy Jeep trail, then enters a wash that is single track.
