Made it to CO!!

my family and I made it to BEAutiful CO this past sunday. I can not wait to get settled in and hit up the trails in these amazing mountains surrounding me! we are in Pueblo which is very nice, a huge resevoir to boat and fish in, the mountains are 25 minutes away, and the weather is great. I hope to catch up with some of you Jeepers in the near future, I am always ready to wheel, so make sure it is posted up and I will be looking for a trip. If anyone knows of any trails close to Pueblo, please let me know where they are so I can hit them up. Thanks!

My family and I are planning a trip to Colorado next summer. We don't have an exact date set yet, but I was planning to place a post here and in other forum sections to find others that may be interested in wheeling together, if they are in the same area of CO when we choose a specific date, time, and location.

I am currently fixing up my 2001 XJ to handle the long drive and the awesome trails that I intend to persue while we are in CO.

I can't wait to wheel in CO.

Moved to the springs last december here, just joined the jeep clan recently here, so still learning the trails. Theres plenty all over, some up here, a few straight west of you. Theres a book you can get with some trails in it, think the publisher is a sponsor and posts here... funtreks.com.

I took a look at traildamage.com also from someone's link. There is a lot of cool photos there and looked like pretty good info. Now that 2005X posted about the www.bushducks.com I am going to check that out.

I am looking for useful information about Colorado trails near Denver to plan our trip next summer.

Thank you.

I've got an Android phone, HTC Thunderbolt, and have installed a program called Backcountry PRO ($9.95). I've been d/l'ing the gps tracks from Traildamage.com and using them. Works great. Displays the track on maps from mytopo.com.

I've also imported a lot of the Google Earth .kml files from traildamage.com and am keeping a record of the trails I've completed. I'm slowly working on a table in MS Excel of all the trail ratings from traildamage.com - to give an idea of which trails are tougher than others (basically so I can determine which trails are more suitable for taking my wife along )

So far I've been focused on Clear Creek & Gilpin Counties.

The trails I like to do around here are Eagle Rock, Chinaman Gulch, Medano Pass, Longwater Gulch, and Hackett Gulch. All are very fun.
