Maybe late winter or early spring before too much melts and the rain comes. I've been to Colorado with the family more then a few times but never wheeling out there. My plans are still open, I can pretty much go around Ft. Collins, Denver, Springs, and as far west as maybe Frisco Lake.

...ok, I didn't know they closed. Let me rephrase this;

At Any time of the year, what are some of the better trails for spending the weekend on. Either camping on one trail for the whole weekend, or spending 3 or 4 days driving a new trail every day?

They close because a lot of them have several feet of snow on them from November to June.

There are lots of trails near Denver, if I had to pick one area I'd say go to either the Buena
Vista area or Ouray. Lots of trails and great scenery.

Gordons Gulch,Surgar Loaf and Pennsylvania Gulch 1-4-09

Man we had a kick ars time to day! Woo Hoo! I dont think I have has that much fun on a trail in a long time. We all met at Dennys in Boulder. In attendance were Dan & Denise, Virgil, Chad, Zack with Jeff and Kennys as sidekicks and Maxamoose with his red YJ!

We aired down at the entrance of Gordons Gulch and headed in. The temp was 7 Deg. at the trail so it was brisk. A lot of the snow had melted since last weekend so Gordons was pretty dry. We stopped at poser rock on the way through for a couple of pics and ventured ahead. We did a few hill climbs and headed NW through Gordons and met up to the Sugarloaf Mtn. Road. We rolled down the valley and met up to Pennsylvania Gulch and finally found some snow.

We headed up Pennsylvania Gulch and ran in to small snow runs but boy they were deceiving! The snow had about a 3-4" crust on it and the snow underneath was like beach sand and was slick! (Felt like glass beads in a media cabinet!) Weirdest stuff I had ever seen. I busted the trail With Zillacon and had the lockers kicked in and had to work hard to get through but man it was fun. Next was Zack in his JK and he did a hell of a job for not being locked but the Nittos did there job pretty good and I only had to yank him once. Next was Virgil in his Silver Rubi. His Mud Terrains were wore a tad and wouldn't grab very well so Zack had to help him with a few tugs. Max was behind with his Yj and did pretty well for his first time wheelin in Colorado snow (Moved here from Florida) We had to air him down a tad more as his Tires would just not get any sidewall flex which help some but he to had to get help from Virgil from the front. Chad did pretty well for having his little pizza cutters but he to fell to the tow rope and winch but we all got up the hill and had a great time.

The Forum will only allow me to add 10 Pics so here is the link to my Forum with pics. ENJOY!

Be careful where you do that, it could have been someones property, try and keep it on designated trails.
