    New Places to Go on the Wolvey ?

    Our group in central North Carolina goes on a trip every other year.

    We started in 2008 in Utah at the Piute out of Marysvale (Been there 3 times).
    1 time in Ferron and Moab - split week/2 locations.
    1 time in Panquitch and Manti - also split week.

    Colorado at Taylor Park ( Beautiful Country.... NO AIR for us flat landers.)
    Part of the group has been back to Moab. Great country but too technical and long hot days.
    We enjoyed the Lasal Mountains to the east of Moab and spent 2 days there.

    We ride the Hatfield McCoy trails on a regular basis.

    Just returned from Rangeley Maine for a great trip. Lot of water and wildlife. Great views and very
    friendly folks toward UTV's.

    LOOKING for ideas for another out west trip next year.

    Our group consist of 8 to 10 riders upwards to 15-16 (average trip is around 10-12 machines)
    We are all experienced riders with UTV's, we run radios and GPS maps. We even have the famous Bob T.
    (GPS map man) in our group so we are only lost until we get unlost !!

    Open for ideas from other riders and places you have been.

    Some Needs:
    Lodging for the group.
    Restaurants if possible
    A central location to ride trails out of
    (No relocating or only 1 time if possible)
    Parking for trailers (see attached )

    Post up places/pics you have been .

    Thanks in advance,

    Have you ridden the Alpine Loop area out of Lake City, CO or Silverton, CO? It meets all of the criteria you specified in your "Some Needs" list. A couple of good restaurants in Lake City and Silverton. In Lake City you can ride on all the streets and roads in the County, even if your not street legal. The county is very very ATV, UTV friendly. Silvertion is very OHV friendly, also.

    Papa,

    We have gone as far south as Devils Punch Bowl while riding the Gunnison area.
    That southern / southwest part of Colorado sure looks great.
    Can you stay in those areas and ride into different areas without moving?
    We really enjoy the Marysvale area (Piute) for that reason. (Park and Ride).
    Heard good things about Silverton and Durango.
    Any Motels or places you recommend?

    Have stayed in Lake City, CO at the Big Texan Resort, a couple of times. Is a great location to stay at, only about 1/4 mile from town, nice cabins, and can ride from the Big Texan Resort to town and to both the North and South starting points of the Alpine Loop. Would definitely recommend staying at the Big Texan for the type of group you have and for the parking.

    In 2017 stayed at Silverton for 3 days and rode all the trails on that side toward the Alpine Loop. Both towns are neat small towns and Silverton still has the Old West feel to it. We stayed at the Red Mountain Motel and RV Park because some of our group was in motorhomes. Could ride directly from there, to town, and on to trails. Wasn't the fanciest play to stay, but very satisfactory, and the price wasn't bad, but definitely an improvement over the cabins at Taylor Park the last time I was there. Parking for long trailers at Red Mountain Motel and RV Park would not be a problem either due to being able to park them in a separate area close to your Motel Room. Motel rooms are mostly individual square shaped buildings with a separate motel room on each corner, but do have some single cabins.

    There is probably 3 good days of riding (could stretch it to 4) out from Lake City and 2 good days of riding out from Silverton. You can ride from Lake City to Silverton and back but you wouldn't make it back during the daylight hours and you would miss the Old West charm of walking around Silverton. Next time we go to that area, which may be next summer, this year is Paiute again in Sept., I hope I can talk the rest of our group into staying in Lake City and packing clothes on our SxSs for 2 nights and ride to Silverton and spend the night, and after the 2 days at Silverton ride back to Lake City.

    Maybe someone else can confirm if you can now ride to the gas station in Silverton to refuel. Last time I was there (2017) you could legally ride within about 200 yards of the gas station West of town about 1/2 mile, but you weren't suppose to cross the highway to get to the station on the other side.

    Edit: I did talk to San Juan Mtn. OHV Rentals in Silverton, today, and they said there is a gas station that you can legally drive to at the corner of 9th St. and Main St. that is next door to the Triangle Motel, on the West end of town.

    Can confirm Silverton/Lake City is great for OHV/UTV riding. Both towns now have gas stations you can drive right up to, restaurants, breweries, and tons of cool stuff to see. Check out a few of the old mines if you get a chance. Recommend getting cabins on Lake San Cristobal outside of Lake City if possible. My crew is gonna stay in Silverton this year and give it a try.

    TexasCoyote, what cabin did you stay at on Lake San Cristobal? Have a web-link to it? There are several privately owned individual cabins around the lake that can be rented on various websites like VRBO and Airbnb. Some are VERY nice, but this puts you about 4 miles from the restaurants in downtown Lake City, if you plan to eat out a lot.

    Here's a trip I'm working on for 2021.(staying on the west side of Newfoundland) I'm not sure how much time you have but a retired couple that I'm acquainted with have done it every year for the past 3 years. It's become a serious bucket list trip for most riders in the New England area. Crossing NL by ATV Home

    The Spearhead trails are great. They are not as heavily ridden as Hatfield. They are not beat to death.
