Best trails for camping???

Hey, everyone!! I'm not dead...just been in hiding lol

Anyway, in 2 weeks from now my 99 will go under the knife and should be trail ready without worry of breaking anything!!! I drop it off the morning of the 19th and pick it up after work the same day (dropping it to a guy in parker)

Anyway...

My girlfriend is really wanting to go camping...what trails would yield the best camping option for a night??? I'm not a camper...never have been and probabaly wont ever be lol. Regardless, she wants to so i of course said yes.

Any help is much appreciated...i'd rather stay within 2 hours one way

thanks!!!

I put a couple suggestions in the "Camping in Summit or Eagle County" thread.

As referenced by John, north and south fork both have killer options.... Also, along the Holy Cross trail there are some killer sites... That said, that is a tougher trail and one you may not necessarily want to run solo, especially without a winch (not sure if you will have one)

Camp Dick isn't too bad for civilized camping and serves as the trail head for Middle St. Vrain. There is also a primitive site near the junction of MSV and Coney Flats (been to this one 3 or 4 times) or a more civilized site near Beaver Reservoir which serves as the trail head for Coney Flats.

Awesome, man...thank you! Checked it out and will most likely be choosing one of those.

haha, i actually am currently building/setting my jeep up to run holy cross
I'm not able to at the moment and wouldnt feel comfortable even with a winch (not mounted at the moment) so once i get the next couple stages of my build done i should be able to.

Goes in on the 19th for a new 8.8 rear axle, chromoly axle shafts up front, 4.88 gears, heavy duty tie rods, heavy duty drag links, and new adjustments (iron rock steering system).

After that will be the sye, adjustable control arms, and full tummy tuck with gas tank tuck.

after that will be front stinger, winch, p4 battery, fold down tailgate, and 3/4 spacers in front to counter the weight.

After that will be some maintenance stuff such as the RMS and new clutch (figure i'll do them at the same time)

And then after that just some comfort things i want such as new speakerbar speakers, seat covers, etc...

Should be done for a while lol

Chinns Lake off Fall River Rd is awesome. Not a difficult trail and the hardest obstacle is at the end.
