Hardest trails in Minnesota

I am a Minnesota native that has considered moving back. What are the hardest trails? Living in Colorado I have been spoiled with the large array of options and am debating if bringing my current jeep back is even worth it.

Thanks in advance

I've only been up to Gilbert in the Iron range park and those trails can be pretty tough it looks. ive only done trails up there on my wheeler but i know for sure my jeep wouldnt have a chance at most of the truck trails

Sorry you asked.

Hahaha I figured as much! I live about 4-6 hours from Moab and there are a ton of actually challenging trails in under 2 hours. I'd love to keep my jeep but I think it may be hard to justify if I move

Andrew, you seriously considering moving to MN? What part of MN you from?? I moved back to WI once for 2 yrs...couldn't stay came back to CO.

I've thought about IF I did move back would I keep the Jeep? On one hand it's a convertible to enjoy in the summer on the other I know I'd miss the rock crawling...and as you know once you build a rig to do more than "crawl the mall" you want to use it for it's intended purpose.

I've been considering it (very) half heartedly. My gf of 4 years is moving back in 2 weeks. She moved to Colorado for me and doesn't like it. I've been considering her vs everything else I love hahaha. Also, My company is based there and income would be a lot better. All that said.... Colorado seems to be winning. I'd definitely miss this state too much.

Got to say Bud, as a native Minnesotan and living here now, I hate to admit it but this state is just not right for a rock crawler. Mudding and snow, yes. The only real places I know of is Gilbert and Dresser, Wi. Good luck to you, but I am not sure any girl is worth losing my Jeep.

Hey MN here.
We have a active jeeping community here.

Bring your jeep if you come.

Check out MN DNR website on trails and ratings.

We do have rocks to crawl on too. Not just mud trails and snow.

Check out info on "the iron rage" area in northern MN. It is not Colorado but still jeep rated

I agree on all fronts. Ironically she drives a jeep now as her dd (her second jeep) and is the reason I bought my first one.... Naturally things went a bit crazy and just over a year later, I'm into my second jeep/build. Number one was a tj on a hp30 and 44 with arbs, 33's, and the typical other mild build stuff (armor lights, bumpers, winch, accessories, blah blah blah.... Now it's a YJ with a v8' linked, atlas, tons, 40's, beadlocks, coil overs, full hydro, cage, 4. Points.... I, sure I'd get some interesting looks driving around lake Calhoun .

That said as an avid skier, and wheeler, not sure a woman is worth another go at buck hill.....

If you're seriously considering moving I'd suggest going back for a week once in dead of winter and once in summer. We tend to remember the good things about a place and forget the things that caused us to consider leaving. The weather, mentality, politics, economy, drinking etc Once I got back to WI, I remembered why I left which I won't go into... I think every place has it's pros and cons and you have to decide what you're willing to live with or without. There are things I miss about WI and things I don't but I've chosen to live in CO. It would take a very special woman to get me to move back to WI or to leave CO for that matter.

I'm back in mn several times per year.... Trust me, I haven't forgotten why I left.... The only thing to do there is drink.... I'm not likely to relocate there... I have some family things that I'd like to be there for to help out, but I love the mountains. I do not want to leave. It would be literally only for the gf. Not thinking I'm going to be doing it either lol

Yup...the drinking (that) gets so old so fast along with all the BS that goes with it. I'm thinking I'll be heading back for a week this late spring or summer. Still gotta decide if I want to drive the Jeep and enjoy the drive or just fly. I guess the GF isn't on WF...LOL
