Start your engines and get ready for some high adrenaline fun with hundreds of miles of exciting terrain near Granby that’s perfect for ATVing and offroading. Off-highway adventures bring you to some of the most stunning landscapes in the Rocky Mountains, and we are no exception. Four-wheeling enthusiasts travel here in summer for the breathtaking scenery and then again during the fall to see the spectacular autumn colors. 

Take a Tour

If you want to be shown the lay of the land, take a guided tour with a knowledgeable outfitter like Grand Adventures. Explore the Continental Divide while driving your own side-by-side ATV, following a qualified guide. You’ll experience breathtaking panoramic views of the Continental Divide and Rocky Mountains, with multiple opportunities for enjoying the views, taking pictures, and occasionally a short hike.

Explore on Your Own

You can also get out there on your own personal ATV, motorcycle, or OHV. Make sure to check out the Stillwater Pass OHV Trail System, accessible from the Idleglen Trailhead near Grand Lake. This extensive network of motorized trails is paradise for offroading in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. Offering everything from easy trails to difficult challenges, this area boasts some of the most beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains. If you’re lucky, you may even stumble across some of the wildlife that comes into the area from nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. Please note that this area was burned by the East Troublesome Fire. Hazardous conditions may exist, so make sure to stay on designated trails. 

If you don’t have your own machine, rent or even buy one when you’re in town. Power World Sports has ATVs, Side-by-Sides, and dirt bikes for sale, and On the Trail Rentals in Grand Lake has ATVs and UTV Side-by-Sides for rent. Each rental includes a helmet, tank of fuel, and trail map. Best of all, no trailers are needed, you can leave directly from their location to explore 130 miles of trails in the Arapaho National Forest.

No matter if you want to choose your own adventure or if you want someone to show you the ropes, every level of off-road rider is sure to have a great time taking in the panoramic view of colorful Colorado in this unique way.
