Ouray Colorado

The trails in ouray have very different skill types than what most people are used to. The green trails are mostly smooth but some can be fairly rocky at places. The blues are doable for stock SUVs. They range from rocks that you have to climb to just being steep. The reds can be steep and narrow but they are a lot of fun. I recommend black bear pass and mineral creek both are reds.

The only time I have seen blue and green trails, I was snow skiing.

Beginners, rookies, people in unprepared vehicles, people who are scared of heights and people who haven't mastered the gas-clutch-brake pedals should stay off of Black Bear Pass. Might as well add Poughkeepsie Pass, Imogene and Engineer Pass to the list also.

It's kind of funny, when in the Ouray area, how come we never see the big boy city slicker three quarter ton Ford-Chevy-Dodger pickups with 6 inch lifts, huge tires and a dozen off road lights? They are all over the city streets in Denver. Are they skeerd of getting dirty? Or do those two point and three point turns below bridal veil falls deter them? Ha.

258 cu. inch six, Team Rush ignition upgrade, T5, Dana 300, Superwinch lockouts, Black Diamond 3" suspension lift, greasable shackles, poly bushings, JKS quick discos, 32x11.50x15 Cooper STT's, American Racing 23 15x8 alloys, Uniden Pro 520XL CB radio, 2' adjustable tip Firestick antenna, Viair 460 onboard air system

A lot of the off 'roads' would be a bit narrow for large trucks without them dropping a thousand feet off of the side.

1. Stupidity should be more painful!
2. Don't believe everything you think!
3. Your post is as worthless as you!
