Routt County, Colorado
The Ellis Trail has been around for some time and is a popular trail in northern Colorado. It offers great scenery and a little bit of challenge for every level of rider. The nearby Ellis Jeep Trail (Red Park Road) is close to 14 miles long and has a number of wet sections so plan for a full day.
