Shauna I have only wheeled in california so I am biased towards it.....ca has every terrain you can think of. I just moved to oregon and am on the hunt for comparable trails

YJmaddness Sad there was only one mention of utah.... there is a reason it is the home of teraflex . There is a lot from salt flats to alpine trails to ghost towns to moab to everything. And still live close to 24 hr food joints.... 15 ski resorts 90 min or less from slc, also the governor just signed to have more public access to public lands....

Raif Montana is pretty sweet. Tons of forest, vastly changing landscape. Also one of the top ten ohv parks in the nation.

LilYeller I dont suppose theres much calling for a Yacht detailer in Colorado, so moving may be out of the question for me.

Mr TenBel0w wow, awesome pics, i think i might have to move to colorado in a couple of years lol. currently live upstate new york, definitely not a bad place for off roadin, i go at it everyday
07-26-2012 01:23 PM
scottmphoto I lived in both Colorado and Alaska. Colorado is by far better. Most of Alaska is inaccessible and not trailed, so most people wheel at Jim Creek - a redneck stronghold where shootings were frequent. People also drown their rigs in drunken stupors into the Knik River. I would not go there alone, unarmed, or at night.

More towards Denver or the springs. As long as your not in the middle of the city you have country real close by

NMRubicon I've got desert sand to mountain snow, and tons of rock, but I would still rather be in Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, or Alaska, I really miss Alaska. Jeepin' in Southern New Mexico.

LilYeller I do like having Top Down weather year round... But all thats around here in Florida is swamps and mud. Flat and boring. I am enjoying the pics tho, keep them coming.

Gunner I dunno cause I'm just getting into this Jeep thing but here in Cal we have the John Bull Trail. The Hammers, The Rubicon, Anza Borrego. Death Valley. Pismo beach. And Topless in the summer crusin on Pacific Coast Hwy. Everything from bikinis to snow within a few hours drive. Plus the Weather.

That's the truth right there.

UnlimitedLJ04 I'm partial to Colorado. There are hundreds of trails. Everything ranging in difficulty from stock Subaru Forester to a 1-ton equipped buggy on 40s. Most of the trails are perfect for a stock to mildly modified Jeep. You can hit 90% or more of the stuff in Colorado with 33s and a good driver.

OP, great thread, and not trying to hijack, just thought i would shine light on some of the ingredients that make up a great place to wheel. 1. a willing community and 2. access.
My mom has a duxbury beach pass and although it is pricey, its a blast and a great way to use 4wheeldrive

Let me explain.

Iowa has Zero places to wheel. Sure we have the occasional mud hole, creek crossing or wooded trail. None of which require any skill or a vehicle better equipped than a stock Geo Tracker. This requires Iowans to travel to other places to get their fix. Having to go greater than six hours to wheel in any direction puts more responsibility into wheeling. We also spend more money on fuel, hotels or camping.

So...The best place to live for Offroad Adventures is Iowa. Cold and snow in the winter, hot and humid in the summer. Plan your wheeling a year in advance, then when you go you enjoy it even more.


Disclaimer...I would love to live in Moab.
Sounds a lot like Illinois.

topher38 Im with mo, colorado is by far the best place to wheel but it's a very biased opinion.

Colorado has a bunch of old mine/ghost towns. And every trail has a different story that goes along with it.
