A Fruita Experience

A Fruita Experience
3 days
Thanks to the invention of the mountain bike and an abundance of fun, flows trails for all types of riders, Fruita is gaining much-deserved recognition as an outdoor paradise.

Sustainability Activity

Travel Like a Local: There are special places and unique vistas around nearly every Colorado corner. You can help ensure these places exist for generations to come by staying on roads and trails, keeping speeds in check, leaving campsites and picnic spots just as you found them, and following instructional signs while you’re out and about in our state.

Insider's Tip

The Reel Deal:

The Colorado Parks & Wildlife fishing app can help you discover 1,300 fishing locations, check conditions and regulations and more. Search CPW Fishing in the Apple App Store and on Google Play.
