Hey! Is Guanella Pass a good beginner trail for a stock Jeep?
It was suggested to me, but I want to hear from the pros :).

Don't waste fuel driving a Jeep over that pass. A 2wd car with low clearance can do it. Join local Jeep groups on trail runs. It is a lot more fun and you can go with groups that have similar equipment so that you do not end up in a situation where half-way up a shelf road you realize that you do not want to "scratch the Jeep".

Which stock Jeep do you have?

Guanella is now entirely paved (except for the section in front of the Dude Ranch where he sued to keep it gravel).

there's a group of motorcycles camping in Grant this Saturday night and doing their annual Elephant Ride where they ride their bikes to the top of Guanella in the snow.

The gate is just before the summit (this is from the south).

If you have a dirtbike - its always a good time :)

Nowhere near enough snow. Although I am ready to run sans doors. It makes my 30 mile commute exciting in the wind that plagues the San Luis Valley. The only upside is it blows all of the dog hair out of my jeep.
