New to Denver and to finding trails
 
What is the best site for finding trails and reading reviews and ratings on difficulties. I have a stock Arctic and want to start on an easier trail.

Now I've searched around and found a few but what is the best one in terms of difficulty ratings, reviews, and directions to them. Also things like warnings (river crossings and depth come to mind).

Thanks!

works pretty good for everything that I need. there are also alot of trail guide books that you can pick up that covers different regions depending on what area of Colorado you want to go to.

Welcome!

Let me know when you go, I'm looking for a bunch of us front range Jeepers to do some camping and all that. My time is limited due to work, etc but I like to get up as much as I can.

Traildamage is an awesome site.

Awesome guys thanks! 3 day weekend this week so I'm thinking Sunday or Monday I'll find an easier trail to go check it out. Keep in mind I'm brand new to Denver and offroading so want to start slow.

Colo-TJ 02-17-2012 04:28 PM

I am thinking about going to Old Flowers Road this weekend.. Your more than welcome join up. I think some of the higher stuff is probably a little to snowed in

Colo-TJ we need to get together and do some trail riding. Unfortunately I can't get out till late March or early April. The wife and I are house shopping, and getting our place ready to sale. I'm jealous of all these posts tho. I'm going to go NUTS!

Colo-TJ 02-17-2012 07:29 PM

Mike, Did you see the post on Ouray? Going on June 8-10 if you want to go.

Mike Romero 02-17-2012 08:35 PM

Sounds like fun, to early to commit. I'll chime in as the date gets closer thanks.

You gunna check with the forest service, Chad?

Colo-TJ 02-18-2012 11:41 AM

yep.. tried to call but no answer.. I think it's closed so i'm thinking about maybe Lefthand OHV or Seven Mile creek if I can't find out for sure. Left Hand is just above Boulder.

1quick1 02-18-2012 04:42 PM

Let me know the plans. I'm in a stock Arctic (Sahara with some Rubicon things like tires) so I don't mind a lower end trail.

From the traildamage it looks like it has some very challenging points. I worry without the lift and bigger tires I may be in trouble there and I don't want to destroy the undercarriage yet.

Once this snow melts I can't wait to get her nice and muddy.

I'm kinda doubtful. It's hard to leave the mother in law home alone after her stroke, and its hard to bring her along, be a little to bumpy. I'll have to skip and give her more recovery time.

I'm going and I got a completely stock 2011 jk sport.

MTtincup 02-18-2012 07:14 PM

Thanks for the offer but I am kinda grounded. Ellen just had stomach surgery and I need to stay close for a couple weeks. Hope you have fun!

I just read through the info on TD and I'm not real sure of your concern. it says that the dificult spots have bypasses. it's totly up to you of course..But we would love for you to be able to go.

Justin.. I hope she has a speedy recovery..

mo1416 02-18-2012 07:35 PM

You can always come and do the bypasses like I have to.

Justin04Lj 02-18-2012 07:59 PM

Thanks Chad. She's doing well. Hopefully by June we will feel comfortable leaving her home alone.
