This is a unique OHV area and easy to get to.
From Olathe, Colorado, turn east on Falcon Road, 4 miles, which is paved and turns into Peach Valley Road, there is 1 mile of gravel road. There is a BLM sign and the big area is on your right. This is a large area with two pit toilets, several picnic tables, some with pavilions. There is no water/electric/dump, but a large flat area to free camp. BLM has maps at the kiosk.
Day 2 -45 miles Nice sunny day, we headed south and rode up some high hills, wow! We finally made it to the Elephant skin road, which we rode south to Flat Top Trailhead, about 6 miles. Elephant skin road is a easy 4x4 road. Most of the trails off this road were for motorbikes or hiking. We did go up the Dump Ridge trail. It rose 530 ft in a short distance, with sheer drop offs on both sides!!
We rode some trails up and down the hills making our way to camp. They are so much fun, but pick the one for your machine and riding experience. They are steeper then they look!
