Open to bikers and hikers, the Thunder Trails are the largest trail system on Wright’s Mesa, just four miles south of Norwood.
Thunder Trails offer four loops and 19 miles of fun, fast and flowing trails, as well as challenging climbs and moderately rocky and technical singletrack. The Thunder Trails offer views of Naturita Canyon and Lone Cone Peak while meandering through ponderosa and oak brush forest as well as grassy meadows.
The four loops that make up the Thunder Trails system each range from 3.5 to 4.5 miles in length. Each loop can be connected and ridden or hiked as a loop or on the east or west sides as an out-and-back.
