I had just recently got a 2001 Jeep Wrangler. I have to say that with this being my first jeep I will never buy a different make of vehicle ever again. Therefore, I am an off-roading newbie. My favorite places to go are the trails off of Rampart Range Road, the Great Sand Dunes, and the trail going up to Crystal Mill and Ghost Town (I forget the name of the road though). Unfortunately I will be moving soon and the great trails of Colorado will not be available to me. Hopefully, GA can offer at least a little bit of enjoyment.
I just moved out from GA and there are some trails out there. Most of it is a pretty good drive out side a major city. The big thing is GA is mud bogging. A lot of fun to go to and see but I never participated in the events. Lots of big truck and deep mud holes.
We took FR379 off Gold Camp last weekend. Camped (wicked cold at night). We got stuck in drifts several times. But the weather was great and had a fun time exploring.
You can summit Baldy from 379. Anyone know if it connects to Pikes Peak somewhere?
here ya go buddy. I got this from the forest service ranger that drives around there. ignore the highlighter. thats for where i used to go camping, but alas that has become way too overused, and getting destroyed by ignorant people who cant clean up after themselves and dont know how to leave the wilderness how they found it...
I haven't been myself, but I heard Mt. Baldy and Mt. Herman can be fun. Both of these are close to Colorado Springs. I went to Taylor Park Reservoir last summer, and there was a lot of fun trails. Ouray is a long drive from Colorado Springs, but it has some of the best 4-wheel trails in the state.
