Montrose County Roads are Now Open to Recreational OHV Use

Montrose County, Colorado

Montrose, COLO.— The Montrose Board of County Commissioners formally adopted Ordinance 2018-01 allowing the operation of off-highway vehicles (OHV) on all country roads located in the unincorporated areas of Montrose County. The ordinance officially takes effect February 23rd following two readings at a publicly noticed board meeting, approval by the board, and published in the local paper of record.

“This ordinance will be beneficial to Montrose County residents,” said Commissioner Keith Caddy. “It serves to enhance ease of OHV traffic recreating on the Rimrocker Trail and the county’s vast public lands and trails.”

The ordinance repealed previous ordinances (2015-01, 2015-03, 2016-01, 2016-02, and 2016-03) regarding OHV usage. Specifications such as a valid motor vehicle operator’s license, muffler, braking system, speed limits, insurance, and more are defined in the ordinance.
