Just being on here is a great place to start. Seems like there are groups going out on here almost every weekend.

joeuncool Wow, shows you how long it has been since I have been up there. Not giving you the chance to go up there and get stuck and stranded takes all the fun and excitement out of things.

I remember burying a couple of 4x4 pickups in the snow on Rampart Range Road many years ago and then it started snowing. Friends and I had discussions as to who we would eat first.

Needless to say, lots and lots of digging and pushing got one out and then we were able to pull the second out.

I feel like Impassable is incorrect but I'm to tired to really figure it out.... So not passable

Do any of you know if they have opened Rampart Range Rd. back up since the Waldo Canyon Fire? I know they had it closed at one point to keep people from going back in that area. Just wasn't sure since Waldo Canyon is closed if they have the roads back there opened now.

Justin04Lj There's a book called fun treks that they sell at all the local 4x4 shops around here. Charles A. Wells is the author its an awesome book that lists almost every trail in southern Colorado. Welcome to Colorado Springs I am here also. Look forward to wheeling with ya.

Anywho Snow makes easy trails super fun and adds more difficulty! Thing is I don't want to be fined for driving on a trail I'm not suppose to be on.
IF there's not a gate, it's open. Not many trails are "closed"... they're just not passable. Don't worry about a fine, worry about the cost of a recovery & the common sense aspect of it. All you have to do is call the FS offices in the link I gave you above & ask what's passable... they'll know.

Got some buddies that just did chinaman and carnage last weekend, said it was great. Holy cross isn't going to be passable right now.

Seems like the stuff down by C.S. is doable right now, but that's not much closer than BV either unfortunately. Some of the lower stuff around here is passable... but it's just driving on boring roads, then hitting big drifts you won't get through right now, kinda anticlimactic.
