Note: These Riverfront trails pages are scheduled to be updated summer 2013. Please see more updated information on the John Hodge Riverfront Trail Map Page.
Tabeguache, the Kokopelli
Trail, and the Rimrock Ride of the Colorado National Monument* are a few of the better known nearby bike rides. The country roads surrounding Palisades, Fruita and Grand Junction also provide many quiet, scenic rides. If you are training for your next criterium or hill climb race, then these rides can meet your needs. Although the Grand Junction area is known for some of the world's more famous bike trails, there are rides for a more relaxed time on designated paved bike trails.
*Some interesting stories about the CCC and Rimrock road.

It's nice to return to the trail and leave the road behind.

Ann Winterholter in an article in The Daily Sentinel on 8.29.2004 reported that the colonial revival-style house was built sometime between 1890 and 1904. Thomas H. Williams immigrated to the US from Cornwall, England. In 1881 this blacksmith was one of Grand Junction's first residents. He resided in his home until the 1920s. Although the house might appear to be a wooded structure, it has red brick walls up to 10 inches thick. These walls made the hot Grand Junction summers more tolerable. This land later belonged to the Jarvis family prior to the city's ownership and then, thankfully, the bike path.
On Saturday June 11, 2005, Mike Wiggins of The Daily Sentinel reports that the city of Grand Junction will tear down the century-old, dilapidated Williams House west of downtown this summer, bringing an end to the ongoing debate about whether one of the city?fs first brick houses is worth saving.
By September 2005, the Williams house passed into history. Torn down by the city without fanfair and only observed by a few passing riders. The foundation may be retained, and some people did keep bricks and lumber, so small pieces of the house will continue.
