Lots of wheeling areas if you want to drive to Pagosa Springs, CO. (about ~90mi from Farm, Also good wheeling in Durango/Silverton) My grandparents live there and I have done most of the trails around there.

Need to get back there! Arghh!~

Farmington blows in general, sorry about your luck.

That being said, you are going to be a short drive from the 4-wheeling epicenter of the universe: Silverton, Colo. (Screw Moab, I think the Silverton/Telluride/Ouray loop is lightyears in front of anywhere else). So be sure to go there OFTEN in the the summer (in the fall they close it until early summer when the snow melts).

Silverton/ Ouray is great for sure. I go there as much as possible.
(you GOTTA do BlackBear pass if you go!)


But Farmington isnt that awful bad.
Its actually has a lot of rougher more technical wheeling than Silverton.
Thats one reason they have the URok / werok competitions here.




The Glade does get abused by many of the locals who toss trash/ appliances out there.
Thats the biggest sucky thing about it.
Lots of oilfield roads and wells there too. But that just makes it more acessable.

I hear there is a move by the infamous sierra klub trying to get it locked up now.

"Earth First" , We'll wheel on the other planets later.

Whats wrong with Farmington? A lil to hard for your mall crawler and weak driving skills? Im sure you impress everyone at Sonic when you run over the curb.

We also have 3 rivers, a good sized lake, sand dunes, and an AWESOME off road area.

If a 2dr Rubi is a mall crawler.

Search around the forums toughguy, I've wheeled everywhere from Hawaii to Black Bear Pass.

My father lives in La Plata and his extended family is from Farmington, FYI, the only thing I found to be worth a **** out there is Navajo Lake- everything else I drove to Durango/Bayfield/Silverton/Ouray for.
