One Shuttle, Two Amazing Trails

The Palisade Plunge has already become one of the most iconic trails in the country. It's also a trail most suitable for experienced riders ready for technical sections of trail with significant exposure. For those looking for an amazing alternative ride on the Grand Mesa without the exposure of the Palisade Plunge, or just a supplemental ride, The Plunge to Powderhorn trail is highly recomended. The Plunge to Powderhorn makes use of an intermediate section of the Palisade Plunge, existing singletrack on the Grand Mesa, and ends at the base of the Powderhorn Bike Park - 17 miles and 2,500 vertical feet later. The Plunge Shuttle provides access to both trails, view our routes below.
