Camping weekend in Grand Lake at the Idleglen OHV Area
I was asked to host this outing again this year. I scheduled it for later in the year as last year due to trail damage half the area was closed. Those who went however did have a good time. The coordinates for the camping area are verified. But because this is a popular place it may be necessary to relocate. So watch for the CQR signs. DIRECTIONS: Here are the directions to the area and some trail descriptions from "ATV Trails Guide Central Mountains" book. Getting There: From Highway 34 south of Grand Lake (0.3 miles south of mile marker 10 across from Dilly Docks), take County Road 4 northwest. This road starts paved, then changes to gravel. After 3 miles , bear left on Stillwater Pass Road 123. (Staging Area is just ahead.) DIFFICULTY - Runs from beginner to experienced. Jeep Trail to 50" wide. Varies from easy to very difficult. Some trails like Spruce-Em-Up-Jack Trail is very narrow in spots with tight, steep turns. Bull Mountain is wide but has giant mud holes, most of which can be by-passed. Trail Creek Loop is steep, rocky and narrow. The upper portion of Beaver Line Loop is extremely narrow and winds tightly through trees. OVERNIGHT: Camping area GPS coordinates [masked], [masked]) are subject to change. There are motels and I believe there are also rental cabins in Grand Lake and Granby and plenty of restaurants. There are pit toilets in the camping areas. Gas stations near by in Grand Lake right on Highway 34. Also there are two State run camp grounds near by with dump service and water. There is a fee for the dump. There is cell service in this area as it is not too far from either Grand Lake or Grandby. There is also ATV rentals and sales near by. MAP: Arapahoe National Forest Off Highway Vehicle Map of Stillwater Pass Area. Stillwater Pass Road and Idleglen OHV Area are the two maps to reference in the guide mentioned above. Also the Sulphur Ranger District MVUM. RADIOS: For those with radios we will monitor channel 5. I think that's it for now.
