Warning
Mountain biking can be dangerous - please know your skill level and be appropriately prepared with PPE before starting any trail.


Overview
Good Vibes is a short connector trail that provides access to other trails in the Little Park area.

Hike
The hike is straightforward. From the Little Park staging area/trailhead, take an immediate right towards the low, tree-covered mesa. The trail winds its way through the pinyon-juniper slopes while gaining altitude. This climb accounts for most of the elevation gain on the hike. Near the end of the climb, the trail breaks free of the trees and emerges onto a broad meadow of cheatgrass. On the other side of the meadow, the trail winds back through some more pinyon-juniper forest before making a slight descent. The trail dead-ends at a t-junction at the end of its descent. From here hikers or bikers can choose to turn left onto Snakeskin, turn right onto Second Thoughts, or simply turn around and return to the trailhead.

Water Sources
None, bring your own.

Note
This trail is rated Intermediate (Blue) for mountain bikers.

    To hike
    From downtown Grand Junction, take Grand Avenue across the railroad tracks and highway bridge. Turn left at the Monument Road light, and then make a sharp left after the coffee shop onto Little Park Road. This road winds through a neighborhood before starting to climb a hill dotted with larger houses. Eventually the road enters public land, as marked by signs and trailhead parking areas. Pass the Tabeguache parking area and climb out of a small wash - there will be a spectacular view into a Morrison canyon on the right. Just past this viewpoint, on the left, is the signed Little Park staging area/trailhead.
