Late winter Jeeping trails in Castle Rock area

I'm pretty new to Colorado, and my brother-in-law is bringing his JK next week to visit and wheel. Does anyone know of any Jeep trails that are open this time of year, within a few hours of Castle Rock/Denver/Springs? I have a TJ, and we're not looking for serious boulder-crawling...just some moderate trails. Both Jeeps are lifted (3"). Anyone have any ideas?

Found a few

We're looking at Hidden Valley Rd, Illinois Gulch, Missouri Gulch. Thoughts?

I've done Illinois Gulch and Missouri gulch in the snow and they are relatively safe. Only real fun spot is Moab Hill just as you start the trail from the Rainbow Falls parking lot. Now that I've got new tires, I considered going just to play on Moab Hill this weekend... The only thing that'll make this area fun is the snow as it's all really easy wheelin. Not sure I'd attempt the gulches (Metburry, long water, Hacket) just yet due to the snow. Also not sure the best place to direct you since we did just get so much snow.

I just drove Cedar Mtn Rd by the gulches yesterday (Metberry, Longwater and Hackett). There looked to be about a foot of snow on them and more in some places. I don't think I'd try getting through them right now. As mentioned before, the ret of the roads around the Deckers area are pretty much open and right now the snow level varies on them a lot. I think you'd be plenty safe on Illinios and Missouri gulches right now.
