Trails

Members of the WS4W Club have been exploring the trails around in Western Colorado and Southern Utah for many years.  As a club, WS4W has adopted many of these trails to help maintain access and further the sport of Off-Roading. Here you will find a list as well as descriptions of many popular trails most often run by the club. Under Area Trails you will find a directory of trails divided by specific areas and links to further trail information as provided by other organizations and area Chambers of Commerce. Before running any trail, we ask you to review the Driver Guidelines for acceptable trail etiquette and Club policies. Club Vehicle Requirements contains information for required equipment to participate in club events and trail runs. Driver Responsibilities are the requirements for attending any Club sponsored Trail Run. The Trail Rating Guide provides a difficulty rating of trails from 1 to 10 as used by most area clubs and organizations. You will find these ratings included in all trail descriptions. Trail Work/Maintenance provides information on planned work on trails adopted by the club or other areas the club provides clean-up and trail work. Tips/Tricks contains information on driving techniques and other helpful information used by club members over the years to improve and enhance your adventures. Finally, Trip Reports contain the latest trail conditions as reported by club members who have recently traveled the area. As always, the Club welcomes current information on these trails and other areas of interest.

This is a current index of trails as compiled by the Western Slope 4 Wheelers. The trails here are listed in alphabetical order.
