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. These trails require an OHV permit for license plated vehicles.
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.
