Trail advice

Hey guys new to the forum. Bought a 12 JK earlier this year. The wife and I are headed to CO in about 4 days and looking forward to doing some trails.

I have done CO on a bike a few times and know lots of the paved roads but want to get off the beatin' path a little. Any suggestions for some roads or trails.

I have checked the Tomboy road from Ouray to Telluride.
Trailridge Road up to Rocky Mountain National Park.
Anything in Moab.

We have a stock set up so no looking for anything tough but want to see some great views.

Thanks in advance and maybe we can meet some new friends.

Welcome to the land of trails, trails, and more trails. Take a look at That has updated trail and pass reports on some of the more popular places. Next thing, since you're only 4 days from coming, is once you get here, some of the gas stations, and barnes and noble book stores, sell some trial guides, with ratings on them, etc. is the site, they have one for the area north of I70, and one for south of I70. With that said, stick with the blue and green trails, no red ones with a stock setup, IMO. If you smoke, please respect the fire bans in place. They dont even want you smoking outside, as the entire state is a big brushpile waiting to go poof, so no throwing the butts outside,lol. There are some active fires going, so some areas may be closed. Other then that, come out and enjoy the sights!

Imogene pass is easy enough. Yankee Boy Basin is pretty up to the trail head for Mt Sneffels.

Ouray area, the trails are not too hard and the views are incredible. Black Bear into Telluride and then Imogene to Ouray is a great day trip.

Thanks guys we leave tomorrow. We are really excited about doing some trails. No smoking in the freight train. Thoughts and prayers to the people in the fire areas. Maybe see some of you out there.

Good info, my wife and I are going in a few weeks and were wondering the same thing, but for some trails a bit more challenging, any recommendations would be appreciated. We have a rubi with 33's and 4 inch lift. I was just over engineer pass on my bike with a friend, we saw a ton of jeeps up there, it didn't look too bad, just steep in a few places.
