Kokopelli's Trail

Description:

Discover one of Colorado's and Utah's premiere mountain bike trails. Stretching 140 miles with elevations that rise to 8,400 feet, this trail is made up of improved roads, four-wheel-drive roads, and single-track roads. Kokopelli's Trail begins at the Loma boat launch parking lot and ends in Moab, Utah. The trail is named for Kokopelli, the hunchbacked flute player and fertility symbol in the Native American cultures of the Colorado Plateau. Kokopelli's Trail is a 142 mile multi-use trail that goes from Loma, Colorado to Moab, Utah. The primary use of the trail as a through route is by mountain bikes. Trail surface varies; the trail utilizes dirt roads (of varying degrees of difficulty), paved roads and some small portions of singletrack. A multi-day Kokopelli's Trail outing requires extensive planning. Kokopelli's Trail includes 8 small camping areas (2-3 campsites each) along its length in Utah. Each camping area has a toilet; some have picnic tables. Each of these is described briefly, along with vehicle access information about the campsites. Please remember that there is no water anywhere along the trail. There are no fees for riding the Kokopelli Trail. A fee is charged at some of th campgrounds on the route, including Dewey Bridge and Rock Castle Campgrounds. The Moab BLM's website has a very detailed description of the route from the Utah stateline to Moab: http://www.blm.gov/ut/st/en/fo/moab/recreation/mountain_bike_trails/kokopelli_s_trail.html. Check it out for more information.
