    Not up there anymore, but lived there for a while. Just started tech? Or UW? Head up to Snowy Range. Lots of good trails up there. Find a map of the roads, or it's somewhat easy to get turned around. Not a lot of serious stuff, but makes for some great trail rides. Just watch out for maintained snowmobile roads if the white stuff is still deep. The locals get pissed if you try to drive on them. :whistle:

    Right on man! I'm from Wyoming. I graduated from the UofW there in Laramie in 98. Awesome mud bogging out towards Albany or around Lake Hattie. Or you can head towards Ft. Collins and leave the highway at numerous points. GO POKES!!!

    I am in Powell up north in Wyoming. I get that direction every now and then. You aren't too far off from our path to Moab too if you wanna join up and tag along.

    I went to Wyo Tech in 95-96 and we used to go East on I-80 to the monument exit then there was a trail all the way back to town that came out behind the Wal-Mart. It went under I-80 a couple of times. I never wheeled out Snowy Range though. I liked the area. Just a little too desolite for me to stay.

    I never can remember the name of that area up there by the Lincoln head. Something-vous? (as in rendevous) Anyway, when I was up there in '02-03, they were shutting down a lot of the trails in that area. Building big burms in the trailheads and completely tearing them out. That's why we ended up in Snowy Range a majority of the time. One of the last runs up there, we found a beautiful lake on the side of the mountain after going up a decently rocky trail. Lots of good times up there.

    There is some good little "canyon's" and rocks to crawl behind the old Walmart (it's a little community college or something now, the new one is on the south side of the road). The easiest place to enter is off of the little road that cuts behind the Shoney's or whatever it is right there going over to the hospital. When the road turns left and starts up a hill, turn right down the dirt road instead. It's good for when you just want to go out for a little bit of fun. One of the funniest things I have seen was watching the national guard guys out there in the Humvees getting stuck on the simplest off-camber, little hills. They would be giving it hell, and not going any where. That's when I figured out that the H-1's aren't all what they're cracked up to be.

    There are lots of trails on the west side of 287 going towards Fort Collins once you get over the pass. I never made it out there, but scoped them out on maps.
