Rustler's is the loop for beginners. If you're new to mountain biking and want to ride something fun, beautiful and not too scary, then Rustler's is the loop for you. You can see from the photos that it is pretty. There are signs around the whole loop that tell you about desert ecosystem around Fruita as well as gives you hints about how to ride well and responsibly on these trails. For experienced riders, Rustlers is a great warm-up. Most of the other trails hit you with a big climb at the beginning. The Rustler's loop hits you with a smaller climb, then puts you onto a nice set of rolling hills that go around this bench. When you're done with this, you're ready to climb Mary's or Moore Fun.
