Northwest of Fort Collins and southwest of Red Feather Lakes, there is a network of Forest Services roads and trails open to ATV users. The Green Ridge route is a high altitude route through dense pine forest.
To reach the ATV riding starting at the Green Ridge trailhead from Fort Collins, head west on SR14 to near milepost 71. Turn right heading north on CR103 for 1.4 miles. Turn right into the trailhead parking area. Keep in mind that this trailhead does not open until at least mid-July every year. There is a gate and it is periodically patrolled prior to the official opening (very wet and/or snowy before opening).
