The Grand Junction Field Office (GJFO) has approximately 480,000 acres of public lands that are open to off-highway vehicle (OHV) travel. Vehicle travel in these areas is permissable as long as it does not cause resource damage. Many areas and roads within the GJFO management area have certain travel restrictions. These travel restrictions are based on the protection of resources on public lands, wildlife habitat and for the promotion of safety by all users. All areas and roads with travel restrictions will be posted at their entry points.
