april 14th moab hill/Illinois gulch/rampart trails

This is a good trail for stock jeeps to big jeeps. Any and all are welcome I'm thinking 9 or 10 am depends on the more popular.

Might want to check everything is open, many of the trails in that area close due to mud in the spring.

I know my local forest trails are closed right now. They were open with snow, but are closed due to mud now.

Im in the Littleton area. Which way are you guys going to go? I could meet you guys closer to the trailhead?

That's what I thought the Denver guys were going to do but they insisted on meeting here in the springs. So if you want to meet us at the trail head feel free.

Trail head would be better for me as well; I am almost to Wilkerson Pass so driving all the way back to Rudys is counter productive.
I can take a ride down to the trail head and verify it's open this weekend if need be?

Traildamage lists the trails as 4-6, but depends on whether there are bypasses or not.
I watched videos last night of stock Jeeps trying Moab hill.. couple made it, couple had to be tugged up or winched.

Should be enough others there to get you thru it.

I've done the trails stock just not the actual moab hill. But you should be fine.
