Description

The Zion Curtain Trail, located in the Rabbit Valley area to the south of Fruita, features ridgeline singletrack riding with amazing vistas of the surrounding desert landscapes.

The Zion Curtain, located close to the Utah-Colorado Border and thus the name, has short climbs followed by technical downhill riding along the exposed rim of a mesa. Views from the trail include the Colorado River and the La Sal Mountains, grazing the sky at over 12,000 feet, in the distance.

The Zion Curtain trail does take some navigation and a trail map is a key piece of equipment here.
