Public Opinion Survey for the Rio Blanco County Trails Master Plan

Wagon Wheel Trail System

Rio Blanco County is a community that welcomes residents and visitors to enjoy great outdoor recreation activities such as camping, hunting, fishing, off-highway vehicle (OHV) riding, among others. To expand opportunities for outdoor recreation, the County started a project called the Wagon Wheel Trail System. The purpose of this project is to provide increased recreational opportunities through unique, satisfying, and sustainable OHV experiences in Rio Blanco County and Northwest Colorado. The long term goal for this project is to complete a trail system which will compliment US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management travel plans, while providing connectivity to multiple counties, similar to the Paiute ATV Trail system in central Utah. 

The Wagon Wheel Trail System currently has approximately 250 miles of roads and trails with varying levels of difficulty. The implementation of this trail system involves inter-jurisdictional cooperation between Rio Blanco County, the Towns of Meeker and Rangely, the Meeker and Rangely Chambers of Commerce, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, local and state enthusiasts. The first accomplishments of the project have included: creation of a database of existing OHV routes, posted route signs, creation of a marketing campaign, development of rules, regulations and enforcement. Two White River Rendezvous events have also been hosted in Meeker bringing some initial success to the project.

Making Wagon Wheel Trail System a reality will take the effort of many people and organizations. You're welcome to join us for the ride!
