Buena Vista and Fourmile, Colorado

This is an area they call the banana belt in Colorado..... I left Steamboat Springs in the morning and it was in the thirties and raining, I arrived here and it was clear skies and in the sixties so I guess they are right, it was in late Sept and the weather was gorgeous the whole week I was there. There are a several  ATV Dirt Bike and off-road trails in the Fourmile area and several places to camp, both commercial campgrounds and FS campgrounds with no facilities. The Fourmile area with the ATV and dirt bike trails reminds me a little of Utah with the desert like conditions and big rocks. The nice thing about here is there are several dual sport rides as well.  There is a nice ride up to St Elmo and then over Tin Cup Pass a Jeep trail to Tin Cup.... Then north to Taylor Park Reservoir and come back on Cottonwood Pass into Buena Vista. I meet a friend trail riding the area and we tried to ride it late in the week but ran into a chilly rain in the mountains and decided to turn around. Too bad cause it was really a cool ride. There were a few ATV trails that branched off the main drag that we rode for a while just east of St Elmo that were really rocky and fun. Here is a trail map of the Fourmile area in Adobe PDF.

Be sure and check out all my pictures. Zoom in Google maps to view trails.

Fourmile 1

Mostly Easy ATV trail with a couple of advanced parts with rocks..... Reminds one of Utah with the rides through the big rocks and boulders. There is a series of tunnels just north of this trailhead a few hundred yards that are cool to ride through. I guess this road used to be a train track and the tunnels were for the choo-choo.

This is a really cool trail, not super difficult but can be challenging in spots. I would call it advanced, but there may be a spot or two that could be considered expert. Don't worry though you can get through it.

This was a great dual sport trip.... I was very upset we could not finish it completely due to weather. The part south of the highway is quite rocky and steep.... I'm gonna call it expert, however quite fun. Tincup Pass just south of Tincup is a hoot. Hope to do it again.
