Use your discretion and check with the local land management agency before riding or driving on public lands. Ride and drive at your own risk. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE!
- Not all routes are open to all vehicles. Follow the Motor Vehicle Use Maps (MVUMs) and signage for the area and ride only on trails open to and wider than your OHV. Almost all trails in Colorado are subject to seasonal restrictions and closures. Visit the road and trail closure info page for more information.
