Located on the western edge of the Grand Valley, Furita is the perfect basecamp for riding the Kokopelli Trail and surfing the Colorado into Utah. Settlement began in the 1880’s with town founder William Pabor, with incorporation in 1844. In the beginning Fruita was an agricultural area, a fruit producing area, today Fruita has become a hub of outdoor activity through three seasons. While visiting, don’t forget to look up the Dinosaur Journey Museum, and dig into Fruita’s far distant past.
