The idea that there are multiple spots to ride dirt bikes in Colorado is blowing my mind . For years , we spent time in , and around , Taylor Park . Then we found the trails around Sargents and the Tomichi Creek Trading post . Now I ’ ve been introduced to Montrose , which has a vast array of different riding right outside of town . If you haven ’ t been , or seen the ridges and ditches footage on youtube , start planning your trip now !
What ’ s great about riding dirt bikes at Peach Valley OHV and the Uncompahgre Plateau outside of Montrose is you ’ re extremely close to a large city . Taylor Park has a trading post , but you ’ re still a 30 minute drive from Almont if you need some city splurges . The Tomichi Creek Trading Post is well stocked in Sargents , but if you want something special , you ’ re driving into Gunnison . In Montrose , you can wake up in town , have coffee
For our family trip , I planned a few riding days with Morgan from Highland Cycles . Though we did have an incident with a chainsaw , it was a memory maker of a trip ! Riding the aspen singletrack on the Uncompahgre Plateau is magical , giving you a chance to weave your way through Colorado paradise . Peach Valley OHV has steep ridges , long hill climbs , and monster ditches that are the equivalent of a skatepark for dirt bikes .
We ’ re already planning a trip back so we can camp more , ride more , and explore more ! I hope you enjoy some of the content we created while on the trip . If you ’ re planning to head that way , or want an organized trip , reach out to Highland Cycles , Gnarly Routes , or Ready to Ride Rentals .
