1 ½ hours from Denver - Travel south on I-25 to Pueblo,
CO. Just before town, turn west on Highway 50. Go under the railroad
pass and turn left. Go approximately ¼ mile to
the entrance on the right. Good practice area for families since you can let
the kids wander on their own a little without fear of them getting too far
away from the truck. Good place during the winter since they don't get as
much snow. Note: Portions of the open riding area were closed as of July
2006. The MX track remains open for organized events. A new master plan is
in the works, and more information can be found
here. As with any area, it is recommended that you check with local

Open riding area in a draw northeast of Ft Collins. Directions can be

hills to practice jumps, so use caution and be aware of what others around
you are doing. Open seasonally from Nov 1-Apr 9.
