Jeep trails around Rye, CO?

Greetings! Gonna stay in a friend's cabin just outside Rye, CO, on Greenhorn Mountain. Can anyone recommend good Jeep trails within a 3 hour drive from that location? Love those high mountain passes and gravel roads. Thanks for your help!

Check out:
TrailDamage.com
Stay The Trail Colorado - Home

Trail Damage gives reviews/pictures of common trails in the area. Good place to find how hard a trail is and what to expect.
Stay The Trail is good for getting the latest MVUM for the area you're interested in, allowing you to do your own exploring and to follow the forest laws. However, it doesn't tell you how hard the trail is.

Rock: My family owes you a debt of gratitude. Tuesday we went on the Ophir Creek Trail, which does pack a lot of fun and scenery in a short distance. We went back today, two ATVs and my Jeep, and went up thru a few inches of snow. Made some of the climbs a little iffy but a hell of a lot of fun. Near the top is a meadow with a fantastic vista of a long valley, and in the distance a long range of snow capped mountains; just a beautiful view.

There we stopped and decided to spread the ashes of my oldest son, who passed two years ago. It was just the perfect place. You see, you never know when a small kindness you perform will have an unimagined effect on people you don't even know! Ophir Creek will have a lasting place in the hearts of me and my family who were there with me, and we will be back.

So, thank you so much, Rock, for taking a few minutes to recommend Ophir Creek Trail. You have a friend in Dallas if I can ever do anything for you.

Mike
