This is a very popular OHV area with many miles of challenging and scenic trails. Only a portion are described here. Unfortunately, the area has been subject to a great deal of abuse. It is critical that you ride on marked trails at all times. Pack out your trash and pick up after others whenever possible. Report violators.

I drove this area in a Jeep last summer (2018). Some of the steep trails are very washed out. I actually got through the entire side loop of F.S. 348C. It was extremely narrow and steep with a big washout down the center. Great challenge and fun! There were some huge water filled mud holes coming south on F.S. 344 below what is now called Moab Hill. While I was in the area, I ran into someone who told me that the east end of Missouri Gulch, F.S. 348, that connects to C.R. 79, was completely washed out. He saw a Land Rover on its side in the washout.
Also, note that F.S. 349 on the left after you turn off Highway 67, had restrictive posts to block vehicles larger than 50″ wide. For the latest information on this area, see our new 4th Edition Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails, set to be released for sale April 2019.
