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 6102E is a half-mile-long spur to the east of what is also labeled 6102E. The end of this trail follows the rim of a beautiful canyon. The trail begins with a steep descent and then climbs through a wash, which may be difficult without 4WD and low gearing. Most of the remaining trail is sand and dirt, but it gets rocky again at the end. There is very little room to turn around at the end. This trail is suitable for any 4x4 with moderate clearance.

Penrose Commons is BLM land and allows dispersed camping, but you should camp only in pre-existing sites. Do not make new fire rings. 6102D has no obvious campsites, but the surrounding trails have plenty. Vault toilets are located at the entrance to the OHV area.
