Butterknife Mountain Biking

  • Apr 13, 2013 · 10:00 AM

Let's do Butterknife! We'll meet at the Third Flats trailhead.

A good description of the route is at http://www.trailfu.com/mountain-bike/colorado/grand-junction/twist-and-shout-butterknife/Default.aspx

Please make sure to bring plenty of water and some food.

I'm hoping that somebody who has done this before will come.

A google map of this is at http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5194716

From the Hike 'N' Bike announcement: "Take Broadway to Monument Road. The left to D Road comes up quickly. That turns into Rosevale, which eventually becomes Little Park Road. Continue on climbing and note that the trailhead for the Third Flats trails is approximately 1.2 miles beyond the well-marked "Little Park Trailhead."
Third Flats trailhead is on the LEFT, but there are many signs indicating NO PARKING despite there being room for it. There is actually a large totally unmarked dirt lot on the RIGHT about 75 yards BEFORE the Third Flats trailhead & this is where hikers and mountain-bikers park their vehicles. "

    I did it once last year and liked it a lot. For whatever reason I haven't been back but plan to this spring. Cant make the 13th as I will be in Florida and Illinois working the week of the 8th. I'd say intermediate for the most part in difficulty with a long slow slog on the return back to the pavement. Enjoy
