Sylvan Lake Region

Sylvan Lake Region

Some of the best open space in Colorado can be found in the Sylvan Lake Region. A popular summer destination, this area is filled with open fields, high alpine terrain, and enough acreage to keep you busy for days. South of Eagle Colorado, Sylvan lake area is about as off-the-grid as you can get so plan accordingly. Fill up your tanks before leaving Eagle and bring enough food and water to get you through the day. Have forest maps and GPS devices on hand and be sure to let others know where you plan on going and when. Other than a few remote cabins, you will be on your own and due the size of the region, you may see other riders but it will feel as if you have the space to yourself. Keep a watchful eye out for cross country skiers and snowshoe trekkers as it is a popular destination for almost every winter activity in Colorado that is not associated with chairlifts.
