Main Draw OHV Area

add an alternate name

Summary


The Main Draw Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) area is the only location on the Pawnee National Grassland where non-licensed vehicles are permitted.  The area, usually open November 1 through April 9, is in the northwest corner of the Grassland, only a few miles from the Wyoming border. This two-mile long draw or gully is popular with dirt bike riders and others with vehicles under 50 inches wide and must have a spark arrester.  Vehicles are required to stay within the draw, and not ride on roads or across the prairie.  The OHV must be registered with Colorado Parks & Wildlife.  Call the Pawnee office for current conditions, as sometimes the area closes temporarily.
