April 14, Fruita - Kokopelli Lion's Trail to Troy Built
We needed to keep a couple trails off Bill & Renee's agenda, as Bill is slightly afraid of heights, and there were a couple of sections on this trail that spooked him. We also wanted to do an easier route so we didn't fry our legs before Don/Val and Bill/Renee arrived with fresh legs. We have normally done this route at the end of our trip with super tired legs, so it was real a real treat with fresher legs. After the hard rain from yesterday, the trails were in primo shape. The amount of hard-pan trail was awesome. We are here a couple of weeks earlier in April, and the cows were out in the beginning section, as opposed to the end of the ride. 9.34 miles.
