Newbie in Fort Collins

Hey guys, I live in Fort Collins and got my license and jeep in October. I have done a little off road stuff during hunting season, but would really like to try out some trails close to Fort Collins. I have a stock Tj the only thing I have done to it is put 31x10.5 hancook atm's on it. What trails would you his recommend for a beginner with that set up?

A great site for trail information is traildamage.com. I'm on wranglerforum.com a lot more than this forum and have been wheeling alot with those guys. 2.5 inch lift with 31s myself.

The good ones I'd recommend in your area have a lot of smoke and flame problems right now. Old Flowers is a nice way to just get out in the forest and test your suspension without going to extremes. Kelly Flats and the T-33 crash site aren't too much further west.

Traildamage.com has good writeups and info though.

I'm here in town too. T33 is fun. Pole Hill is a decent all around trail (at least one I would think of taking visitors to for a quick intro).

As others have said, TD is a grand site for trail info.

For scheduling rides with others (highly advised to trail ride with at least one other vehicle - I've been pulled out [fuel pump] once). PM me for an intro to a ride focused group if you wish.

Alright thanks for the info guys, I checked out trail damage and really like it. I plan on trying to get up the poudre canyon for some offroading and maybe some camping once this fire is under control. Thanks for the info, and thanks for the offer Jim I'll probably take you up on that in about a month or so.

Dusting out my "thread subscriptions" I came back to this one.

How's the jeep & trails fairing for you?

It's been great! I've ran 7 mile a couple times this summer and done some trails around red feather. Just put on a 2.5 in lift this weekend, and I'm loving it so far.

What trails around Red Feather? What'd you think of'm?

I haven't been to, essentially, any up there (but should). Seven Mile and a the two-tracks around Halligan Reservoir and that's been it in that area for me (next summer I should change that).

I'm not sure of any of the names, but we explored a bunch of fire roads off of deadman road while looking for a camping spot.

I've been in Fort Collins for about a year and haven't been wheeling once. I've got a WJ now, had to sell my xj on 38's when I left TN. Let me know if you guys wanna hit up some mild trails or need help wrenching.

Hmmm - anyone want to see about getting out this weekend?

Saturday looks to be a decent day and I think I have time.
