Welcome to Fruita
Home to some of the best singletrack in the US, modest Fruita is becoming a popular destination for mountain biking, though its trails are still less crowded than nearby Moab, Utah. It has thus far escaped a dire fate as an extended suburb of Grand Junction. Its cute two-block 'downtown' has traveler services that wisely cater to cyclists, beyond the odd antique shop and Saturday farmers market. The town is also the gateway to the 550-mile Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Hwy, a recent addition to the Scenic & Historic Byways network, which leads north to Dinosaur National Monument and into Utah.
