Palisade Rim Trail The Palisade Rim Trail is an intermediate to advanced trail that showcases the beauty of the Palisade area. The lower rim trail is a lollipop; most people ride this portion clockwise. For an extended ride, include the upper loop as well. Watch for petroglyphs on the lower loop and feel free to take pictures of them. We do ask that you refrain from touching them and respect their value to our community.
Gunnison Bluffs / Old Spanish Trail The Gunnison Bluffs / Old Spanish trail area is most easily accessed from near the Mesa County landfill. This trail is mostly advanced beginner to early intermediate, but the views here are spectacular.
Gateway Trails The trails around the Gateway Canyons Resort are listed (according to the map) as mostly intermediate to advanced riding.
