Alma trails

This may be a dumb question but I'm new to Jeeping. Are there any good trails around Alma? I don't mind driving a couple of hours to get to something good but I'm driving 11 hours to get there. I figured I would just go and ask people when I get there but I'm anxious!

From the middle of town there is the Mt. Bross trail (ask local for info) i only know it by site. here is a recent link. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/m...rt-wk-1388130/ A few miles S. is Mosquito Pass. Just S. of Fairplay on US. 285 are Browns/Breakneck Pass, Fourmile Ck. and others. N. of Alma near Montgomery Res. is Wheeler Lk. trail. In Breckinridge there are North,Middle and South Fork. You can also drive up Peak 10. There are way too many trails to list. I would suggest grabbing a map and asking the locals. Holy Cross/Mt. Blanca are a short drive from Alma alot depends on what type of trails you are looking for easy - hard, and how far you want to drive.

Judging by your name, you're from OKC? Former Tulsan here, and 11hrs would be about right to reach the area. Mosquito pass, which is over 13k feet high, is right near Alma, and a few others in the area. If you expand out a couple of hours of pavement burning, theres dozens of trails. Just depends what you can stomach, and what your machine can take. bushducks.com has some info on high country trails here, and if you dont have a trail guide, pick a trail guide once out here. Funtreks puts some out, as well as a few others. If you are going to Denver, and taking US285 from there to Fairplay, to reach Alma, there are several trails that can be reached off of it, east of Kenosha pass. Redcone(post about it active right now), Geneva creek, Webster pass, etc.

Yes I'm from OKC. Have a place to stay in Alma. Always go in the winter but haven't been in a while during the summer. Just got the Rubicon and can't wait to try it out. Not much around here!

Thanks for all the info. Very helpful!

Naww the middle of the sooner state is pretty barren. Now down by clayton, ok, there is some trails, and a mud fest every year. Lots of greasy clay there, mixed with rock, makes it interesting.

Wheeler Lake is a bit more challenging and would be very nice to check out your Rubi.
