A view over the Colorado River from Steve’s Loop.
After hiking Mack Ridge on Sunday I’ve been motivated to continue hiking the rest of the trails in the Kokopelli Trail System near Loma that I have not been on before. With the weather being nice this week and days getting longer I decided to try and squeeze in a short loop after work today. After looking at a map I settled on Steve’s Loop since it looked like it would offer great views over the Colorado River near sunset and would be short enough to complete before it got dark out.

I decided to take the loop in a counter-clockwise direction so I would start high and get and overview of the lower loop.

A nice view up the Colorado River towards the mouth of Rattlesnake Canyon.

Back to my Jeep shortly before sunset with a nice view of the Book Cliffs across the Grand Valley.
Here’s a map of Steve’s Loop in the Kokopelli trail System.
