Area Information

Cinders OHV area encompasses approx. 13,500 acres of open country. The riding area is a strange mixture of Ponderosa and Juniper-covered forests with trails winding through the trees. There are also very long and steep hills suited for ATVs, buggies and other vehicles. But be forewarned, this is a challenging ride spot with loose volcanic-type rock ranging in size from very small pebbles to stones about one inch in diameter. Altitude is 6,500 feet, so bring extra jets and equipment to properly tune your vehicle for optimum performance. Dispersed camping in most of the area is allowed, but there are no toilets or drinking water on location.

Developed camping is available at nearby Bonito Campground. The site features volcanoes, lava flows, cultural resources, interpretive programs, hiking, sightseeing, wildlife viewing, fall colors. Facilities at Bonito Campground: 44 single unit sites with tables, fire rings and cooking grills, paved roads and spurs, campfire program auditorium, drinking water, toilets (flush type), one accessible campsite, barrier-free toilets, two educational sites. This ride spot was featured in our March '99 issue.

Hustlin' Race Quads
When Brett Sanderson shows up to Dumont or the sand drags, he brings a double threat in the form of these two drag bikes. Wait until you see the details and workmanship on these beautiful ATVs. Nice!
