Main Draw OHV Area ATV Trails

Northeast of Greeley in the Pawnee National Grassland, the Main Draw OHV Area is a popular area to ride ATVs. Both are allowed only in the draw.

To reach the trailhead and parking area from Greeley, head north SR85. Turn right on CR 122 and then take a left on CR 45. Turn right on CR 126 and the parking area will be on the left.

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.

Note: As of September 2007, ATV riding is prohibited on all Forest Service roads outside of the OHV area.
