Will be driving up to muzzy hunt near Silt. Am needing info on a spot to pull over and rest horses either just south of Denver on 25 or preferably just west of Denver on 70. Any suggestions appreciated.

LAST EDITED ON Jun-17-15 AT 10:30AM (MST)[p]Jefferson County fairgrounds west side of denver off I70 looks like a good bet. May wanna call ahead but most county fairgrounds welcome that sort of thing if we clean up after ourselves. Just don't leave em unattended. My brother had a horse stolen at a ropein in Denver a few years back. Took about a year to locate the horse in texas! JCF-303-271-6600

Thanks DW, the fairgrounds are a possibility. I had heard something about an area for unchaining along 70 maybe just west of tunnel, said it would be good for walking horses and a nap. Just don't think we want to try 16 hrs with no rest.

I agree 16 hrs is too long. Not sure about how safe the chain up area is. The fairgrounds will have water as well which as you know is key to keepin them from tyin up over a long trip. I'll ask around about the chain up area.

There is a ride-n-share lot just into the foothills on 70 west of Denver. It is the first exit once you start heading up the hill (about 1 mile) No clue on how much room you need for your horses but parking lot is big enough to get in with trailer and park. Nothing really around it would be able to walk your horses around there.
