Throwback Thursday: Trail ride on the North Branch of the Old Spanish Trail

The Grand Junction Old Spanish Trail Association hosted "Back to the Trail," a celebration of 20 years of running, hiking, biking, and horseback riding on the Old Spanish Trail in Mesa County.

The event took place July 29, 2016, at the Whitewater Trailhead on Coffman Road. The celebration featured reenactors arriving on the trail dressed in authentic 19th-century garb on horses and mules.

Fort Uncompahgre, the first commercial trading establishment in Western Colorado. Fur trappers and traders used the mule as their transportation over the rugged terrain on Western Colorado.
