New to Denver and to finding trails

What is the best site for finding trails and reading reviews and ratings on difficulties. I have a stock Arctic and want to start on an easier trail.

Now I've searched around and found a few but what is the best one in terms of difficulty ratings, reviews, and directions to them. Also things like warnings (river crossings and depth come to mind).

Thanks!

works pretty good for everything that I need. there are also alot of trail guide books that you can pick up that covers different regions depending on what area of Colorado you want to go to.

Welcome!

Let me know when you go, I'm looking for a bunch of us front range Jeepers to do some camping and all that. My time is limited due to work, etc but I like to get up as much as I can.

Traildamage is an awesome site.

Awesome guys thanks! 3 day weekend this week so I'm thinking Sunday or Monday I'll find an easier trail to go check it out. Keep in mind I'm brand new to Denver and offroading so want to start slow.

Let me know the plans. I'm in a stock Arctic (Sahara with some Rubicon things like tires) so I don't mind a lower end trail.

From the traildamage it looks like it has some very challenging points. I worry without the lift and bigger tires I may be in trouble there and I don't want to destroy the undercarriage yet.

Once this snow melts I can't wait to get her nice and muddy.

I'm kinda doubtful. It's hard to leave the mother in law home alone after her stroke, and its hard to bring her along, be a little to bumpy. I'll have to skip and give her more recovery time.

I just read through the info on TD and I'm not real sure of your concern. it says that the dificult spots have bypasses. it's totly up to you of course..But we would love for you to be able to go.

Justin.. I hope she has a speedy recovery..

Thanks Chad. She's doing well. Hopefully by June we will feel comfortable leaving her home alone.
