Battlement Trail ATV Trails

Northeast of Grand Junction, the Battlement Trail is a 14 mile route. While this is a well-known trail for horseback riding, it has become very popular with ATV riders.

The western trailhead is located off US70 south of Una near the end of CR306.

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 on Forest Service roads is only allowed on signed, designated routes. Also, the ATV must have a valid Colorado ATV sticker.
