FATMAP difficulty grade
Zippety Do Da is one of the original trails in the North Fruita Desert that helped put Fruita on the mountain bike map.
The singletrack flows along treeless desert ridges, plummeting sharply down the back side of the rolls in the ridge only to rocket back up the next ridge.
The flow is incredible, the speed bordering on scary.
The commitment required to drop into the descents fast enough to make it up the next steep ridge actually requires advanced-level mountain bike skills, although the singletrack isn't actually rocky or technical.
While a confident intermediate rider could probably tackle this trail, it's surprisingly challenging. The 18 Road Trail System offers many climbs and options to get to the top of Zippety Do Da, but two of the most popular are Prime Cut (mapped here) and Western Zippety.
However you choose to get up, the descent down Zippety is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!
