Chutes and Ladders is one of the most popular trails in Fruita. It is definitely a fun ride. The ladders are steep, the chutes are pretty steep and tough too. There's one switchback on the first chute that will kick your butt if you're not ready for it. The climbs will definitely challenge your technique and your leg strength. My favorite part of this whole trail is the section that you get when you are done with the chutes and ladders. It drops you out onto a cow pasture with about 3 miles of BMX track on a gradual downhill. It is a freaking blast to ride. Turn right at the horse corral and that takes you back to the parking lot.
