Lester and Ruth Will lead the Bookcliffs Loop in the Grand Junction area. We plan to leave from the north side of exit 227 (in UT) on I70 at 10:30am. Allow about 2 to 21/4 hours drive time from Montrose, allowing for construction and traffic. Total mileage for the trail is about 77 miles and the trail is rated a 1 – basically a dirt road but we want to explore it. Please have a full tank of gas (last chance for a fill up is Fruita exit), lunch, snacks and water.
