Four-Wheel Driving/Off Road Motorcycling — The public lands surrounding Grand Junction are to be treasured, respected and enjoyed by all. It is our every day for some and a destination vacation to others.
Access points around Grand Junction offers over 480,000 acres of public lands that are open to off-highway vehicle (OHV) travel. Vehicle travel in these areas is permissible as long as it does not cause resource damage. Please look for restrictions on wildlife habitat and safety for all. Bangs Canyon and Rabbit Valley Recreation Area are just two examples of designated OHV areas in the Grand Junction area. Look to the Grand Mesa and North Fruita Desert towards the Bookcliffs for other options. There are actually too many trails to list, so we recommend planning your next trip with the Colorado OHV Opportunities Maps by Stay The Trail Colorado. They are free and very informational! They even offer downloadable pdf maps from the Grand Junction BLM Field Office.
The Grand Junction Field Office for the Bureau of Land Management is also an unbelievable resource when planning your off-road trip, here is a link to regulations so that you are in the know.
Looking for like-minded people? Check out the Grand Valley's OHV Association here: http://wsatva.org/ or click on their YouTube video titled, This is Our Day, of the club riding and volunteering with the National Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management in the and around the Grand Valley.
