easy to moderate trails around SW Denver

Hey Guys,
Getting my new JKUR this weekend and looking for just some easy to moderate trails that would be near me that could just go out an run to break it in a bit . New to Jeeps but use to have a old S-10 Blazer that I use to run all over the trails in the Black Hills before moving down here.

Any advise would be appreciated

Youve come to the right place. Lots of awesome guys and gals on this forum. Most will bend over backwards to help another jeeper out. Feel free to find trails that look fun and start planning runs and post them up. Youll always have at least one jeep come with.

Congratulations on your Jeep! Welcome to the forum.

Slaughterhouse gulch is a good, easy run and semi close to Denver (Bailey). One I can run in my stock TJ, minus the really cool whoop de doos... for now

Welcome to the forum. There are plenty of trails that you can run right outside of Denver. problem for now is that most are still closed. But that being said they should start to open any day now . The higher elevation ones start opening in June.
I would suggest getting yourself a Trail book. the ones from Funtrex seem to be the most accurate. The other thing is to keep an eye on this site as someone usually has something going about every weekend.
Good time and Great people.
Happy Trails, Chad

Welcome to the forum. Try Traildamage.com. It's a list of most trails in Colorado.

Welcome! I'm out in Littleton and some of the close ones I hit are around Yankee hill, just outside Idaho springs.
