Grand Valley OHV Area ATV Trails

North of the Grand Junction airport, the Grand Valley OHV Area has 17 sq. miles of desert terrain with open space ATV riding permitted. There are rolling barren hills of mancos shale.

DIRECTIONS: From I-70, take the Horizon Drive exit. From the off ramp, go northeast on Horizon Drive, heading towards the airport. Take a left on H Road (this is the last road before you drive into the airport). Follow H Road around the curve to 27-1/4 Rd, turn right on to 27-1/4 Rd, travel 1.5 miles, you will see the trails off to your right. At this point, it is BLM property on both sides of 27-1/4 Rd; you will see several places suited for parking and offloading your OHVs.

NOTE: Motorized vehicle use is permitted only on existing roads and trails.

Note: Colorado residents must register their off-highway vehicle with the Colorado State Parks (303) 866-3437. Out-of-state residents who bring OHVs into Colorado must purchase a Colorado Non-Resident OHV permit which is valid from the date of purchase through the following March 31. These permits can be purchased anywhere you get your hunting/fishing licenses in Colorado. All off-highway vehicles must have an approved muffler and spark arrester. These requirements are subject to change so make sure to contact the Colorado State Parks prior to using your off-highway vehicle.
