    Default Tabeguache Trail



    Found this while looking for hiking trails in Grand Junction, it's a really good breakdown of the Tabeguache Trail.

    http://gjhikes.com/ Sometimes the links to that site dont go to individual pages, enter Tabeguache Trail in the search.

    "The Tabeguache Trail is a 150 mile long mountain biking route between Grand Junction and Montrose, Colorado that was made by connecting various sections of pre existing roads with a few sections of singletrack and other trails. Much of what is described here can also be completed by jeeps and other OHVs by substituting nearby roads for the sections of singletrack. In fact, the first time that we completed this trip some 20 plus years ago was in a jeep. "

    The BLM has a detailed page too: https://www.blm.gov/co/st/en/fo/ufo/...l#hwy2monument

    "The Tabeguache (pronounced TAB-a-watch) Trail crosses public land for 142 miles, connecting Montrose and Grand Junction, Colorado. The trail begins in Shavano Valley and weaves through the canyons, mesas, and highlands of the Uncompahgre Plateau before ending in No Thoroughfare Canyon, a few miles west of Grand Junction. The trail is marked by brown fiberglass posts approximately every mile, and at all intersections.
    Most of the trail is on remote lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service and BLM. The adventurous nature of this trail requires users to be cautious, personally responsible, and self-sufficient and have a working knowledge of backcountry survival. The use of topographic maps, a compass and/or GPS unit is strongly recommended. Carry plenty of drinking water as it is not readily available along the trail.
    When wet, all unpaved roads and trail segments may be impassable to both mountain bikes and vehicles. To reduce damage to the resource, you are encouraged to avoid the area when wet conditions exist. It is difficult, but not impossible, for high-clearance 4-wheel drive vehicles to travel all but single-track sections of the trail. Users are urged to respect all property rights by closing gates, being watchful for livestock, and camping only in approved camping areas.
    Users should also be aware that the Uncompahgre Plateau is a nationally renowned hunting area, and during the hunting season, it is highly recommended that you wear orange hats and jackets. Check state hunting dates with the Colorado Division of Wildlife before beginning your trip.
    For more information on the Tabeguache Trail, please contact the BLM Uncompahgre and Grand Junction field offices, or the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association (COPMOBA), which has produced a brochure for the entire trail."
