as of right now, saran wrap.. It is close to home and a good morning run with a cup of coffee. I think it has an 8 rating but not sure why, seems more of a 6 in my book.

Chinaman's Gulch near Buena Vista. It is a solid 6 with areas to play. It is dooable in a stocker with experience but it is not easy by no means

China was is definitely fun. But pretty short. I haven't done one of the exits so not sure how much time it adds.

Red Cone, Webster Pass among others in that same area would be good starters with awesome views.. Really there are a lot of trails in the great state of Colorado to enjoy without huge mods... I would suggest hitting a book store and getting a good trail book. They are a little pricey but well worth the investment.
But heres a few links... keeping in mind that alot of trails are closed untill spring especially with the recent snowfall..

TrailDamage.com - Red Cone
TrailDamage.com - Webster Pass
TrailDamage.com - Hall Valley
TrailDamage.com - Santa Fe Peak
TrailDamage.com - Hunkidori Mine

These are just a very small handfull of great places to go stocker.....
hope it helps. Happy trails--Chad

I've hit Argentine and it's a cool close trip to Denver.

My fave: TrailDamage.com - Wheeler Lake

Spring Creek is my current favorite, I was on it yesterday. Some say it is difficult but most hard sections have bypasses. And once you get to the top, you have many options to get down. The most scenic is going west and coming down into Georgetown.

I think for newer guys, the Central City area has alot of easy trails.

I'm new to Denver and to offroading but also not an idiot.

I was thinking about this one for my first one TrailDamage.com - Russell Gulch

But please give me suggestions if there's something better and close to Denver.. I'd prefer on the easy and non-dangerous side and I just bought this Jeep so don't want to scrape it up as of yet so minimal rock climbing and being new to the mountains I'd like a high scenery rating.

-Chad (the new one) hahaha
