Pikes Peak area Trails?

We spent a week in the Ouray area last summer and loved the trails! Thinking of staying around Colo Springs /P Peak this year, are there similar trails over there? Anything like Blackbear or Imogene? I have a medium duty rubicon with 33's, Thanks.

There's a reason I go 300 miles each way every summer to go Jeeping in the San Juan Mtns. There's some fun trails around here, but nothing like that.

Black bear pretty much scared the crap out of me. Soo fun, but with all the other trails out there, I thought I might save 4 hours and stay on the east side of Co. Coming from OKC it's about 13 hrs vs 9. How about just west around Salina? Nothing as tall as the San Juans, but look like some good wrinkles on the trail damage map.

There's some excellent trails in the Salida/Buena Vista area

That's another good possibility. Red cone, Webster Pass, Radical hill, etc.
These are pretty close to Breckenridge.

Both the Salida area trails and the Breckenridge area trails offer some great 4 wheeling and great scenery. Both areas are a 2 hours-ish drive from Colorado Springs. Both those towns have lots of places to eat and stay, they might be a good alternative to staying in C.S.
