Hahns Peak Trail ATV Trails

North of Steamboat Springs in the Routt National Forest, the Hahns Peak Trail is a remote and scenic ATV ride. There are about 60 miles of dirt roads and trails to explore. Views of Hahns Peaks 10,839 foot summit make a drive to the Steamboat Lake area rewarding. The summit is an easier hike than it would first appear. Youll be treated to spectacular 360 degree views of the Routt National Forest and the Mount Zirkel Wilderness Area, as well as north all the way into Wyoming.

To reach the trailhead from downtown Steamboat, head west for 2 miles and turn right heading north on CR129 (Elk River Road). Continue for 29 miles to the Columbine townsite. With the General Store on your left, turn right onto the dirt jeep road, FDR 490. At this point, private property needs to be respected. Drive 1.8 miles down FDR 490 and it will fork, turn left. After 0.2 miles it forks again, again turn left and park. The trailhead is at 9,400 .

The town of Hahn's Peak is the place to fill up on gas and food, and to find a place to stay.
