Grand Mesa Trails


Grand Junction's Grand Mesa Trails have a plethora of trails for visitors and residents with a ton of variation in skills levels and length. Some of the trails will challenge you to the utmost, so be sure to be prepared for these if you aim for trails like Crag Crest and Indian Point Trails.  And what can be better than that right? Well, we can add one more item to that list, four new trails have been opened this spring, Second Thoughts, Cut Off, Good Vibes and Snake Skin. Check out Western Slope Now's news report for more information. 

Wagon Wheel Trail System


Colorado OHV trails don't get much better than the Wagon Wheel OHV Trails with over 250 miles in Meeker and 360 plus miles of riding trails. From easy to expert there are plenty of opportunities for you to explore. During the summer the Wagon Wheel OHV club also hosts two events, one in Meeker and one in Rangely. From July 12-14 join for great food, breakfast, music, and more in the Meeker Event. Rangely's are still to be announced, so be sure to check back because as soon as we have an update we will share it with you!

San Juans National Forest


The Dolores Ranger District is host to several trails just outside of the town of Dolores. There are easy and more difficult trails, but for technically advanced drivers, this area offers a handful of single track motorcycle trails that connect. With the Golconda trail, the West Mancos Trail and the Willow Divide OHV trail you will experience some of the best Colorado OHV trails here. Definitely check out the Dolores Ranger District to get a full list with maps of the trails. 



Ouray is host to five trails with the Jeep Badge of Honor status. These Colorado OHV Trails include The Alpine Loop, Yankee Boy Basin, Imogene Pass, Corkscrew Gulch, Engineer Pass, Brooklyn Road, Black Bear Pass, Last Dollar Road and Ophir Pass.  One of the longest historic routes, Alpine Pass is full of sights from old mining towns like Silverton, and it is suggested to make exploring this route a multi-day adventure. There are several smaller trails that break off that do not allow OHV vehicles, so be sure to check your route before you go so you know where to stop off for an on-foot adventure.   Some routes can get slippery like the Brooklyn road but you'll pass through the gorgeous Red Mountain Pass, and if you check out the Black Bear Pass you can pass by the Bridal Veil Falls of Telluride.
