Fall is a great time to get out on your dirt bike. Both you and your bike will enjoy the cooler weather, and with the aspens slowly starting to change, the scenery will not disappoint. Here we’re going to highlight a few places near Breckenridge that you shouldn’t miss this fall.
Three awesome places for you and your dirt bike:
- Tiger Road, Breckenridge, CO – There are about 25 miles of trails back here that are OHV approved. This little nestled network is close for shuttling bikes if you are staying in the area. It can get a little crowded on weekends with side by sides and Razors, but there is plenty of single track to stay on to avoid more congested areas. This is a great place for beginners who are just learning as it offers a wide variety of trail difficulties. Find more information here!
- Fourmile Recreation Area, Buena Vista, CO – Buena Vista (BV) really isn’t that far from Summit County and with temperatures usually at least 10 degrees higher, it’s a perfect getaway. BV features almost 200 miles of road and trails plus a ton of variety for all skill levels. This special little spot is only about 45 minutes from Breckenridge, and is typically ready to ride in April while Breckenridge is still melting. It also stays a little warmer in the fall for a weekend getaway. Designated campsites with breathtaking views of the Collegiate Range are spread along most of the routes. Trail #1425 is a 6 mile long single track that is a bit advanced, but a great loop. For more information check out Fourmile Travel Management Area!
- Taylor Park, Gunnison, CO – With a plethora of trails, this is one of the most coveted places to take your dirt bike. The beautiful part about Taylor Park is that you can make it a day trip from Breckenridge (2 to 2 ½ hours’ drive). This is also a great place for riders of all skill levels. However, if you are looking for some advanced trails, we would recommend: Star Trail, Timberline and Dr. Park. There is plenty of camping, wildlife viewing and with Taylor Reservoir being right there, you could even get some evening fishing in. With a central location and over 40 trails, you are bound to have to come back for more. If you’re to learn more, click here!
