Kokopelli Trail System is located in the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area (NCA) just outside of Loma 15 miles west of Grand Junction on I-70 next to the Colorado River. The semiarid desert terrain, red rock canyons and river views make this area unique. There are a variety of “loops” that can be ridden individually or connected to make longer rides. Trail difficulty ranges from easy to advanced. The easiest trail in the system is Rustler’s Loop. Intermediate trails include Mary’s, Mack Ridge, and Horsethief Bench, and the most difficult is Moore Fun. The Kokopelli Trail that goes to Moab starts in this area.
