Hi Guys. Anyone know if a 50 inch side by side ATV will get thru the pipes and navigate "Lost Trail" near the Rio Grande Resevoir in Area 76 ? I know a 4 wheeler will but was wondering if any one has been up that trail with a side by side. Thanks.

Trail 821 is designated as a less than 50 inch trail so it might not be legal if you are wider. My buddy hunts from the Lost Trail Ranch every year on a Landowner voucher, he rides a dirt bike in. The motorized trails that lead to the best elk country up there are dirt bike only.

I've been on that trail with my Honda Rancher...they have vertical poles set up to restrict access over a certain width.....I can't remember exactly what it was but if it says 48" you won't get through with anything wider.

I was just there two weeks ago. It will be tight. My sportsman with aftermarket wheels is 49 1/2" wide and just barely fits. When I was in there last season, I saw utv's on the trail. This year I noticed it was posted no side by sides at the trailhead.

A 50" side by side is legal. We use that trail all the time with ours. Have a great hunt
