Penrose Commons is a BLM OHV recreation area near Penrose, Colorado. The area is full of crisscrossing full-size and ATV trails of varying difficulty. BLM Route 6102 is the main backbone route through the middle of the area and continues to wind its way down the east side. The road is mostly rocky, with short dirt sections that may be muddy in the wet season. There are several areas with small rock steps, mostly 6-8" tall. One section on the east portion has small boulders and larger steps up to 12" tall, which may be difficult for a stock 4x4. Sections of the trail can be tight between the juniper trees, but careful driving should avoid any pinstripes. The trail ends in a large loop, with a short spur to the south. There is a small turnaround area at the end of the spur, which could fit 2 or 3 vehicles. The east portion of the trail follows a large canyon with spectacular views. Penrose Commons is BLM land and allows dispersed camping, but you should camp only in preexisting sites. Do not make new fire rings. 6102 has several existing sites and a large parking area near the beginning suitable for trailers or RVs. Vault toilets are located at the entrance to the OHV area.
