Area Trails


      The Western Slope 4 Wheelers has the unique distinction of being located in what some would say is the heart of Off Road Country. Based out of the City of Montrose, the club is fortunate to have a vast network of trails available to explore. We are constantly updating information on these trails as conditions and opportunities change. In the effort to bring our Off Road friends the best trail information possible, we have divided the trails into various geographic areas. These areas list known trails, their directions to the trail head and additional information for descriptions and trail ratings. All information presented is offered in the hopes that you will find the same adventures and fun that our members enjoy every year.
