Colorado Off-Roading Laws
Before you hit the trails in a UTV from Ouray Mountain Adventures, you should familiarize yourself with Colorado’s off-roading laws and regulations. Adhering to these rules ensures that everyone stays safe and enjoys their time in and around Ouray.
Stay on the Trail
The land surrounding Ouray is filled with incredible off-roading trails for everyone to enjoy. However, it’s important to remain on the trail at all times when off-roading through the mountains.
Driving off of the trails or creating new ones is against the law. illegally-built trails destroy the area’s flora and fauna. Unauthorized trail formation can also cause erosion or similar impacts on the land’s stability. These effects are devastating to public protected lands, not to mention harmful to the animals who call the San Juan Mountains home.
When in doubt, look for signs and other trail markers. You can also use the map provided by Ouray Mountain Adventures to confirm which path a trail takes.
Mind the Signs
When you take your Ouray UTV rental out on the trails, you’ll notice standardized brown and white signs at the beginning of all routes that allow motorized vehicles on the trail. When you see a red slash through a specific vehicle symbol, the trail is closed to that particular vehicle.
When driving a Polaris RZR from Ouray Mountain Adventures, you will want to stick to the trails that are open to ATVs. The provided map from our staff members will also indicate trails you can take.
Passing and Right of Way
There are many places along the off-roading trails in Ouray where it isn’t possible for two UTVs to pass at the same time. Therefore, drivers should follow the rules of the trail as they relate to passing and right of way.
Passing: Slower vehicles should yield to faster vehicles unless obstacles make this impossible.
Right of Way: Ascending vehicles have the right of way on off-roading trails. This means that descending vehicles (those moving down a hill) should yield and let ascending vehicles (those moving up a hill) pass.
Effective communication between drivers also helps ensure everyone stays safe on the trails when two vehicles encounter each other. If possible, talk or use hand gestures before passing or stopping to let an off-roading vehicle pass you so everyone knows what’s going on.
Whether you are driving a Polaris RZR you rented from Ouray Mountain Adventures or riding along with someone else, safety should always be your first priority on any off-roading trail. This part of Western Colorado is very rural, and the nearest towing services are hours away and expensive. Also, you may not have adequate cell phone coverage to call in the event of an emergency.
Stay on the trails, maintain low speeds when going over obstacles and driving through areas of low visibility, and follow other safety precautions you would anytime you operate a large vehicle. This will ensure your safety while enjoying the San Juan Mountain trails in your Ouray UTV rental.
