OHVs on streets
Many cities and counties in Colorado have opened some or all of their roads/streets to off-highway vehicles (OHVs).
In addition to OHV trails, there are a number of Full Size Trails open for recreational travel with full-sized vehicles in Colorado.
Trail Maps and Information
Stay The Trail Colorado provides a central place where the public, organizations, and agencies can download all US Forest Service Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUM) for National Forest Lands and all of the available BLM Motorized Area Maps located in Colorado. These maps are kept up to date as the US Forest Service and BLM update their maps. Funding for this effort is provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife in the form of grant funding that comes from registration of Off-Highway Vehicles in Colorado.

About Stay the Trail
Our mission is to reinforce and highlight responsible OHV use, and to modify and mitigate irresponsible use in an effort to minimize resource damage on public land. Our goal is to create a statewide culture of responsible OHV use.
We are primarily funded by grants from the OHV registration program managed by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Your contributions help us spread the word of responsible OHV use when visiting Colorado public lands.
The Stay the Trail Education & Stewardship Alliance is a 501(c)(3) educational organization. We have several employees, a Board of Directors, and Ex-Officio Advisors who lead our team of OHV enthusiasts.
