OHVs are a great way to enjoy the outdoors. Near to Indian Mountain, there are many miles of Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management roads designated for motorized use. Contact these agencies for maps and information. OHVs are also useful for land management or recreation within an owner’s Indian Mountain lot. However, it is illegal trespassing to use your ATV on someone else’s Indian Mountain lot without their permission.

Signs are posted in Indian Mountain as a reminder that ATVs are not to be ridden on the public roads in the subdivision or in Indian Mountain Park. The same restriction applies to any other OHVs not licensed by the State of Colorado for use on public roads. Please be respectful and operate such vehicles only on private lots or in nearby permitted areas.

Colorado State Law (see C.R.S. 33-14.5-108 (2014)) requires the following:
  • All off-highway vehicles (OHVs) are to be registered and numbered, except for OHVs used for agricultural purposes or used only on an owner’s private property.
  • Colorado’s Department of Parks and Wildlife administers registration of OHVs, including motorcycles, dirt bikes, three-wheelers, ATVs and dune buggies. See http://cpw.state.co.us/buyapply/Pages/RegistrationsOHV.aspx.
  • Registration is to be renewed once every year.
  • No one under 10 may operate an ATV on roads designated as OHV routes unless they are under the supervision of a person with a driver’s license.
  • Unlicensed OHVs are not to be operated on the public streets, roads or highways except to cross these roads or for agricultural purposes.
  • No OHVs are to be operated on public lands without a lighted headlight and taillight between sunset and sunrise.
  • It is unlawful for a person to operate a motor vehicle on any federal public land, trail or road unless the federal public land, trail or road is signed or otherwise authorized for such use.
