Trail Suggestions?

Picking up stock JKUR and looking for suggestions for first couple trails within a couple hours of Denver. Looked at China Wall and Slaughterhouse on YouTube, but all vehicles looked to be lifted.

Hmm... I'm pretty new to this as well, my first trail was devils canyon, getting my jeep on 3 wheels scared the crap out of me but was fun (this wouldnt happen to you because you have disconnects). I would say the rampart trails are good starting ones, They are within 45 minutes (for me) but I heard the trail conditions are sketchy right now

china wall isnt bad at all. We had a stock YJ go thru with no problems. It is only sketchy if you want it to be. There is only one place that is of any concern and just spotting thru it you will be fine.

Yankee hill around St. Mary's Glacier is easy once the snow is gone. Good choice of a Jeep.

China Wall was awesome for my YJ, was a little nervous on one spot, but OOOHHHH what a rush, I highly recommend it. Lots of choices for lines, easy or hard. Once you've climbed rocks, dirt roads just don't do it.

Oh yes they do, but then I have a slightly different approach to dirt roads...
