West End Loop Rides

The West End of Montrose County has a variety of loop and “out n’ back” rides waiting to be discovered and explored. Years of mining exploration and ranching have created hundreds of miles of backcountry jeep trails through this rugged and unique wilderness landscape.

Many of these trails have been long abandoned so caution should always be exercised when traveling on them. Be prepared for hazards of any kind including rough, rocky and overgrown trails. Carry and know how to read a topographical map and pack plenty of food and water for this high desert environment. Always let someone know where you are planning on traveling and stick to your planned route. Riders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the route using maps and be prepared for unexpected delays. Ride times are estimated for continuous traveling at average riding abilities.

All loop rides described are unmarked unless noted.
