Weston Hills ATV Trails

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Alt Names

Thunder Basin National Grassland, Buffalo Field Office, Big Horn Mountains, Devil's Tower

Last Known StatusTemporarily Closed  (for hunting season)

This popular area offers around 15 miles of ATV trails that mainly consists of hard packed and gravel roads, making this a good choice to bring the beginner rider or family. The trails form nice long loops and are marked by white arrows and boasts scenic views of the nearby Big Horn Mountains and Devils Tower.

There are three staging areas and future plans include adding bridges, a kids play area and more signage. Camping is permitted but is primitive so come prepared. All OHVs must display a Wyoming ORV Sticker. The trails are open most of the year to motorized use but closes seasonally from September 15 through October 20 for hunting season.
