need help planning trip


I'm starting to plan a trip for next summer. Ill be starting in south Georgia, making my way up to my home state of Indiana to hit the Badlands, and ending somewhere in arizona or california. The wife and I plan to stop through Colorado. She has never been. I have been many times to ski in Fraser (winter park, specifically). My question being, where are some places around Fraser we can wheel? I'm looking for some light to medium trails as I am not trying to push my luck on such a long trip.

Posts: 2,707 will be your best resource, along with trail recommendations here.

There are photos and difficulty ratings of trails that are very helpful. Jones Pass, Byers Peak, and Rollins Pass West are all close by and easy. There are a lot more trails within 30 min from easy to semi-technical should you choose.

There isn't anything challenging in that area. If you have been to the Winter Park area, try somewhere new. Anywhere in the Summit County area (Keystone/Breck/Vail) has better wheeling.

Also keep in mind that depending on what time of summer you come, the higher up trails may not be opened yet. In early summer, a lot of the trails are still closed.
