Famous for singletrack MTB trails, Fruita is base camp for Western Colorado adventure. Hiking, rafting, horseback riding, the amazing National Monument, historic downtown, coffee shops, and festivals are ready for you!
Downtown Fruita features a walking tour of 16 historic buildings. Nearby are free self-guided tours of dinosaur excavations at Riggs Hill and Dinosaur Hill, while The Dinosaur Journey Museum combines fossils and skeletons with robots and interactive exhibits.
Stop by the majestic and scenic Colorado National Monument Visitor Center for a better understanding of the history and geology of the rock plateaus and canyons in this stunning 32-square-mile monument. Then fill a water bottle or two and see them for yourself.
Visitors at the Fruita Fat Tire Festival in the last weekend of April can spend the day exploring the endless singletrack trails of the Grand Valley, then kick back and listen to live bands in the park. In early June, Mike the Headless Chicken Festival celebrates the story of one Fruita chicken who lived without his noggin for 2 years.
