Where to ride in Colorado ?

Alright guys after seeing some of the pics you have posted of Colorado , my buddy and I are having 2nd thoughts on our 1 week Hatfield Mccoy trip coming up in another month. we are from Des Moines IA so its about the same drive either way. We would love to see some amazing scenery and do some technical riding too. I would love to hear from some people that have ridden out there. Where woudl you suggest to ride? is there any place you can ride and camp along the trail? is there any quad friendly towns along any trails systems ? we would really like to camp. please suggest some cool places and why you like them . I would appreciate any pics of cool places youv'e been
thanks-- any help , ideas, and or suggestions would be great.

AxS, I responded to your PM. From what I know of Taylor Park, CO is the most popular riding area in CO. The link below will take you to the most popular CO ATV forum. It is also a big Polaris forum with some really knowledgeable Polaris people. 2/3 down the forum is a section "Rocky Mtn Rock Hoppers", this is the section about riding in CO. I spent a lot of time on this site before our trip to TP and got a lot of good advice. The place to stay is Taylor Park Trading Post, they have, cabins, RV spots, and tent camping. You can also camp along most of the trails. The forum can answer all of you questions. In my PM to you I posted a link my TP GPS map and tracks. Well worth getting, its free.

Lake City, CO / San Juan NF

Four of us spent 5 days riding all over the San Juan NF and camped every night on the trail. Great trip! Lots of BLM land accessible via the highways out of Lake City, CO. The ATVs we rented were tagged so we had no issue but, we did see some out of state folks get warnings and tickets so, you would need to check into that...

Good luck and have fun!

I'm a native of Colorado, grew up riding the many places there. The variance in type of trails is huge while most rides providing great views one way or another. Here is the best conglomeration of trail info: Stay The Trail Colorado - Where To Go - Stay The Trail OHV Trail Guide Some areas get a great rep in Colo and get a lot of out of state riders, e.g. Taylor Park, however other areas are just as nice and less crowded, e.g. Grand Mesa. My concern for you would be timing... June is a risky month to expect to have the trails completely open where you choose to ride. At higher elevations the trails won't open until July. A Colo state sticker is a must, you will get stopped and ticketed without it.

i've been to taylor park, pitkin and crested butte. they are wonderful places to ride. we rode last july and pearl pass still wasn't clear. i wouldn't ride in the colorado upper elevations until mid to late july. we're riding around south fork and creede in the roosevelt national forest this summer and we're waiting until august for our trip. i'm already excited. i've been to hatfield mccoy and they are fun trails but i'd visit them when the fall color is peak. for riding in the summer you can't beat the rocky moutains. just my 2 cents, have fun!
