Area Information

The North Sand Hills SRMA is the only OHV sand recreation area in the state of Colorado! It is a non-fee, primitive OHV recreation and camping area with 1,400 acres total within the SRMA, of which 800 acres are open for OHV recreation. The camping areas are dispersed primitive sites, and only two free-standing toilets are onsite. The trail system in the SRMA begins in the sand, winds through the aspen and sagebrush, and leads both to the dunes and up into the Colorado State Forest. The North Sand Hills SRMA is a great family location for spring, fall, and summertime fun! A donation tube is located onsite to help the BLM maintain this special area and keep it open for free use! Vehicles need to be equipped with flags, and safe driving is advised. An OHV sticker or registration is required from your state of origin. Bring your own supplies, and be sure to pack out any trash. This ride spot was featured in our February/March 2004 issue.

Andy Chandler was lucky enough to get his hands on a buggy that previously belonged to Andrew Buck of Buckshot Racing. This X3 is unique, fast, and it looks nicer than ever thanks to Andy's hard work.
