Pit Stop on the Way to Interbike: Horsethief Bench Trail, Fruita, CO

Many people have written about how gnarly the drop-in to Horsethief is, and I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of it as well. Well, the only thing I can add is that the pictures just don’t do it justice. All of the obstacles are WAY larger in real life, and it’s hard to believe that someone actually chose to put a trail there. When you have to scramble (use your hands) to climb back up a trail, you know that, really, you shouldn’t be riding a bike on it.
