Trail Information


The North Sand Dunes Road is one of the many enjoyable 4WD trails in the Walden, CO area. The trail offers some great views of the North Park valley and the sandy dunes below. The area is popular with OHV and 4X4 enthusiasts alike. The road climbs from the valley floor into the Route National Forest. Although the beginning can be intimidating because of the openness during the assent, the route is easily navigated by a stock equipped 4x4 vehicle. Both experienced and novice off-roaders will enjoy this ride.

Descended into the Sand Hills area via this trail. Awesome views and pretty easy, just watch your angles on the switchbacks.

The Mullen Fire near Fox Park, WY more than doubled in size today to over 80k acres. This prompted forest closures along the Colorado / Wyoming border.

Trail was nice and saw only a few other users while we were on it. No other vehicles just OHVs using the trail. Beautiful views near the top and a fun ride.

The trail to Waypoint 5 is in the sun and free of snow for the most part. The rest of the trail is still heavily burdened with considerable snow. It will be a while before this one opens.
