Any fellow CO Jeepers hitting the trails this weekend (9/3/11 or 9/4/11)

Hey gang,

Relatively new to the Denver area and was hoping a small group of Jeepforum folks were going to be hitting the trails this upcoming weekend (9-3-11 or 9-4-11). Please ping me if you are as I would love to be shown some good trails. Getting my OHV Permit this afternoon so "Johnny Law" does not give me a hard time! I have a 11' Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited with a 3.5" Teraflex suspension lift, Stock Tires, and NO winch.

Thanks,
Wade

If we go out, I think we will be going towards Ouray at this time. Stock KJ here, so not sure how much trouble we will get into. Is your vehicle plated in colorado, or has out of state plates? If you havent bought one alread, Funtreks makes a couple of good trail guides, one for the northern half, and one for the southern half of the state.

I'm a low possibility. I'd well enjoy heading out with someone though I'm new to the CO trails (too). I might be heading out with family (bro/sis & fam's) this weekend. Plans are up in the air.

What's the OHV permit? Something a street licensed vehicle would need?

Between my brother (Denver area) and I we have the three books (CO, NoCO, Moab). If you have any questions on'm or what to see one - holler. 4x4 Offroad on Willox Road in Fort Collins has a display and I think the three are in stock.

Those books, nice to flip and read through, and TrailDamage.com look to be decent resources. Anyone know of others (aside from comments on the forum here)?

Verify this info before you set it in stone, but if your vehicle has colorado plates, I dont believe you need an OHV (off hwy vehicle) permit. Seemed like I read this the other day on here, or somewhere that google took me.

Kelly flats is permanently closed I think, not %100 on that? that was a great trail though, the squeeze was the first real obstacle I conquered in my jeep haha.

Id be in for a trip but im currently breaking in a new set of gears.

Ok, take this for what its worth. I went to the SE regional office for the state parks dept. here in C springs. I talked to two gentlemen about the OHV permit issue. The guy that handles them said, that as of right now, as long as you have state plates on the vehicle, that counts for your permit. He said there has been rumors circulating about this, but as of now this is it. He also added next year it may change and require the permit in addition to plates. 719-227-5200 is the number of the office.

I am meeting with one other rig to do Eagle Rock and Bull Park trails just west of Colorado springs Sunday the 4th. This is a Traildamage run so an e-invite is the only way I can get you in if you are interested.
Look the trails up on TD and see what you think. I have not done them yet. Eagle Rock is pretty rough I think and Bull Park is mellow?
It's an early meet - 8am in the springs.
There may be some other TD people who will still rsvp.
