Fruita celebrates Kokopelli trail

By  | 

FRUITA, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Fruita hosted a celebration Thursday night to thank it's residents for their part in funding and helping create the Kokopelli trail.

It all started with the ability to enjoy the trail, whether they biked, hiked or ran.

Then the city got together for beer, fire, music and food -- everything you want after a good bike ride. It's all to thank the residents and sponsors of the trail for their support.

"This is an outdoor recreation area and so not only is it good to bring tourism into the grand valley but it's also great for local residents," Tom Burke, board member for Great Outdoors Colorado, said.

The Kokopelli trail is part of the larger Colorado Riverfront Trail project, which aims to essentially connect Grand Junction to Moab. The Kokopelli section is 4.5 miles long.
