Holy Cross is the best reason I can think of to go to the Lunch Loops. It was designed by the same guy who did Moore Fun. Since that is definitely one of my favorite trails within 200 miles of Fruita, that says a lot. The designer of the trail looked at all the fun and interesting things that would be a challenge to ride over, then drew a squiggly line of trail to connect them all. Holy Cross snakes through big rocks and boulders and manages to make a wonderful, technical, flowy trail that will definitely keep you on your toes. Jason and I walked a few sections, we definitely went back for seconds and thirds on some sections. If you're an intermediate rider that enjoys a challenge, or an expert rider looking for something fun to bash through, Holy Cross is the trail for you. If you're a beginner, you may do more hiking than riding. There aren't any huge drops or climbs on this loop. Just a lot of rocks and turns. It is the most fun you'll have in Grand Junction without getting arrested.
