Southern Colorado Wheeling

Hi, I am looking for some good wheeling spots in southern Colorado. I will be taking a trip with some friends in late April 2019 and our planning has begun. Three or four rigs. We would prefer the more challenging spots, something along the lines of Calico out in SoCal or Dusy Ershim/Rubicon Trail in NorCal. Thanks for any input!

I can't believe no one responded. Tons of trails in the San Juan Mountains and area. Telluride, Ouray, Lake City, Silverton, Durango....

The Alpine Loop is fun, but not super challenging. Black Bear is higher difficulty and supposed to be amazing. Poughkeepsie Gultch is an "experienced wheeler/winch only" kind of trail, so you might dig that.

Thats because most trails dont reopen until June-Early July. Last year some opened starting in May but It was a light snow winter. This year snowpack is above normal for once so openings should be the normal June. For the front range March and April are the the snowiest months (I have had 5 feet of snow in one storm)

Good call! I didn't even think about that. I've been in June a bunch of times and actually moved our trip back to July this year b/c Imogene and some of the others don't often open in June.
