    OK...Stupid Question of the Day...Where can I go to do Moderate Wheeling? I live in Steamboat....and cant find anywhere. I've been pulling ppl over if they look like they have any kind of a wheeling rig at all, and nobody knows where we can go... Am I stuck on pavement????? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Find out where the local forest ranger office is. They sell pretty decent maps for about $10 that will show you any Jeep trails (usualy listed as forest service roads) in the area. The rangers might even know of a few trails that they could recommend. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    We've got the same problem down here. The Hayman Fire was just to the west of here. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Lots of good trails were closed, but there are still some places to at least go for a cruise through the woods.

    You might try this... 4x4trails.net
    They cover quite a few trails in the state. Better hurry though, winter is coming!
    For me, it just means it's time to change toys and come up to Steamboat/Rabbit ears! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    You could always head down toward Kremling/Gore Pass?

    Dave, It's really best to get some topo maps of the areas you want to check out if you haven't been in there before. The forest service should have them. Be careful this time of year or you might get snowed into a trail and not get out tell spring! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    We'll need to hook up sometime, just don't know if it would be this year, anymore. Dave (From Dillon)

    Too bad, if you would have moved in there you would have been right next door! I have the horse ranch across the highway. 4-1/2" for the white stuff today kinda shuts down wheelin around here (kinda). /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    i am not sure how hard the trails in N CO are.. i had the opportunity to run what is called black bear pass. it is said to be one of the hardest in the area, in S CO, it goes from hwy 550 (14 miles north of silverton) to Telluride. the last stretch is amazing as you decent 2500ft /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif of oneway switchbacks into telluride past the old Telluride powerhouse (Bridal Vail Falls). [​IMG] there just one of the many pics i took while in CO..here is the link to some of my pics.. Colorado Adventure
