You can start by looking at some maps on this site. Stay The Trail Colorado - Home The motor vehicle use maps (MVUM) at BLM/USFS offices. Those are the ones to use to stay legal. How far are you wanting to travel to ride? I'm south of springs with a bunch different trails 30 mins from my house. Welcome & enjoy riding!
I was in Pueblo Visiting my son last october and he took me to Texas Creek. Just west of Canon city. Was a nice ride. I know there are alot more scenic or challenginf trails in Colorado But being its in your back yard. Cant beat it. I cant wait to get back out there.
You can check this site if you would like. Most of us are in the front range area and a few are from your area. It's coming up on riding season and we should be getting out even more now. The Events, Shows & Trail Runs section is where you will find the most ride information.
Lambo...To follow on with Fishhooker, if an MVUM is available for the National Forest area you are riding in (and they are for ALL Forest Service areas), make sure you get one and carry it with you. They are free from the Forest Service's offices. Call them and ask to have them mailed to you. If you get caught on a "closed" trail that is not marked on the ground, for what ever reason, the map is the "gospel" truth. The fines can run upwards to $5000 and 6 months in jail. You'd be better off robbing a bank!
Another thing, I'd like to recommend that you consider joining one of the organizations like COHVCO (Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition) or the Blue Ribbon Coalition or others. They are constantly "standing in the breech" to help keep our trails open for riding, against the constant onslaught of the Enviro-wackos. My wife and I are members of COHVCO. Their website is Home - COHVCO
