The 5 Best Off-Road Trails on the Western Slope
The Western Slope of Colorado, where we at Adrenaline Driven Adventures are lucky enough to call home, is also home to some of the best off-road adventure trails in the nation. While many people will flock to Moab and its surrounding areas or the Mojave Desert of California, we like to think that Grand Junction, Colorado, is right up there with the big dogs with none of the traffic.
1) Mt. Garfield & the Little Book Cliffs
Located just north of Grand Junction, Colorado, Mt. Garfield, and the Little Book Cliffs are sure to amaze everyone in your group. This vast high desert area offers adrenaline-filled roller coaster-style looping hilltops and is within minutes of our headquarters. Grand Junction’s North Desert trails are an excellent option for everyone and every skill level. From small roller hills to sandy wash crevasses, you will get to experience some of the steepest trails you could imagine or just get accustomed to off-road riding. However you choose to enjoy them, this vast network of trails will lead you to some of the most breathtaking views within the Grand Valley.
We use this location as our signature ride for a reason! Not only does it offer you the fastest way to enjoy your Polaris RZR, but when you book through us, you also get a professional off-road tour guide and a guaranteed good time.
2) Cactus Park and the Uncompahgre National Forest
Interested in getting the best views possible at a slightly slower pace? The trails of the Cactus Park area are ideal for people looking to enjoy the Western Slope from the best seat in the house. Located in the Uncompahgre National Forest, the mountain terrain consists of narrow, rocky trails with sandy swooping stretches. While spending time on these trails is still a thrill, the terrain requires a steady pace to be safe. Spending time on these trails offers awe-inspiring, larger-than-life views of the Dominguez Canyon and Uncompaghre National Forest.
If you are interested in getting a professional tour of Cactus Park, just let us know! You will have to book at least 24 hrs in advance so we have time to trailer everything you will need to the trail so you can enjoy as much time possible riding.
3) Bangs Canyon and the Tabeguache Trail
Bangs Canyon and the Tabeguache Trail are two of the most famous trail systems this side of the Mississippi. These trails offer an experience comparable to our neighbors in Moab, Utah, without the crowds. Providing rocky terrain for a crawling experience like no other! These trails will give that thrill of flexing out your RZR and climbing surfaces you never thought would be possible. This location gets you out of your comfort zone and lets your heart do the driving!
