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 6101 is the main route through the west side of the Penrose Common area. The trail is mostly rocky, with short dirt sections that may be muddy in the wet season. The trail becomes tighter and more rocky the farther west you travel, with a rocky climb out of a beautiful canyon. Near the end is a very rocky hill with ledges up to 12", which will require a careful choice of line, good clearance, and possibly a locker. This is an out-and-back trail, so be sure you can get back up this hill before heading down. The turnaround area at the end of the trail is fairly tight. Large groups would not be recommended. Penrose Commons is BLM land and allows dispersed camping, but you should camp only in preexisting sites. Do not make new fire rings. There are only a few preexisting campsites along 6101. Vault toilets are located at the entrance to the OHV area.
