Red Feather Lakes ATV Trails

Northwest of Fort Collins and Red Feather Lakes, there is a network of Forest Service roads open to OHV users.

The best trailhead is just to the west of Red Feather Lakes. Follow Deadman Road (CR162) for about 3.5 miles up the switchbacks and look for the trailhead on the left side of the road for the popular Killpecker route.

Some of these the trails shown on this map overlap with the trails shown on the Green Ridge map.

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 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 permited on roads marked as open to ATV. All ATVs must be registered.
