Are there any good campint trails in the Panhandle or Colorado?

I know they are 2 very different scenery, but I would like to go to both. I would like to find some trails that we could drive down and camp along the way. Kind of like what these people did. (link) I don't want anything to extreme as my Jeep is stock but wouldn't mind a little obstacle here and there. I am heading down to Corpus Christi here in a few weeks to drive down the 60 mile beach and camping down there too. Anyone know of any good spots?

Been to Corpus deal. Just a bunch of straight beach, camping only on the beach itself, no dune driving! AS far as trials in Colorado, you couldnt ask for better trail ridding camping. Go to the Silverton/Ouray area and you wont be disappointed. Take trails like Cinnamon, Black Bear, and Engeneer. Actually I cant think of a trail there that is bad, so take them all! You can base camp at a camping area(primitive) outside of Silverton.

Thanks. I have been looking at a website called traildamage.com and they have a ton of information on trails in Colorado, and some in Utah, California, Arizona, Texas and Wyoming. Funny for you to say about the Silverton area because I was looking through their list (about 73 places) and I think I decided on starting at the Stony Pass trail and going up to Kity lake. I wanted to go to black bear but I showed my fiance some pictures of it and she freaked about driving inches from the cliffs. I might have to wait on that until she warms up a little to what a jeep can do since we have only had it for a couple of months.

Well, I am from the plains so don't laugh when I ask this. I have been looking at a bunch of trails in Colorado, and every trail I see at some point, they all stop and air down their tires. I know air expands as you ascend (since I am a diver) so how much should I air down when I start traveling up the mountains? Or do I travel part or the way and then air down?

well, in all honesty, I never air down unless I am going to be in the sand or drive over some serious rocks...

I mean like huge rocks, not just simple trails with small to medium rocks...your mileage may vary, you can air down if you want...I just usually don't unless I am going to be doing one of those two things...
