Roosevelt National Forest Jeeping & ATV/UTV Trails
Close to the Denver area, Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, the ATV trails around Allenspark are easy to access and ideal for four-wheelers of any skill level.
Beginners will love the mild Bunce School trail. Close to the Peak to Peak highway, the wide, scenic route offers an easy five-mile ride through groves of aspens and pines. Riders can start at the trail's north end and check out the old Bunce School, a late nineteenth-century schoolhouse on the National Register of Historic Places. Or start at the south end, where Camp Dick offers pit toilets and camp sites for those inclined to stay awhile.
From Camp Dick, riders can also find the more moderate Middle St. Vrain trail. The three-mile route offers a few moderate obstacles as well as several small stream crossings. Riders who make it to the end are rewarded with a scenic area with several hiking trails and stream fishing.
The extra adventurous can try out the Coney Flats trail. The challenging five-mile ride is easily accessed near the end of the Middle St. Vrain trail. Riders climb a steep, rocky and narrow trail up to The Lake, a large body of water that can run from shallow to deep depending on the season. Four-wheelers should stay in the center of the lake to cross and watch to make sure their air intakes don't go under water. Those who make it across will find a smaller water obstacle and then a downhill ride to Beaver Reservoir. Alternatively, riders can start at Beaver Reservoir and then take the steep, rocky road downhill to the Middle St. Vrain trail.
Whatever trail - or trails - you choose, Allenspark is sure to offer a thrilling ride.
