Highlights

Highlight: B South Road
On a remote edge of the McInnis National Conversation Area, B South Road is easy access to scenic views of the nearby canyons and mountains. The sandstone canyon walls rise 400-500 ft in some places, showing off the eons of erosion that have left striated rock all over the park. Dense areas of sagebrush surround the trail providing you with a heavy scent and the local cow's something to graze on. If these sometimes defensive cows are willing to leave you in peace, there are plenty of unique camping locations along the way too. Don't miss this gorgeous desert trail that's a great getaway inside of a national treasure.

I absolutely LOVED this trail! My favorite of the ones we did in the area. It is very scenic, and has a lot of little fun spots all along the trail to take amazing pictures! Watch for cows near the big cave! It has a little something for everyone's offroading taste

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Jen & JD moved to Colorado from Chicago in May of 2015 for work and brought with them a 2001 stock Jeep Wrangler that had been garage bound for two years. Within a month of arrival, all rusty 170,000 miles of it was shaking on Colorado trails and they've never stopped. As time as gone on, their 2001 TJ had to be traded and a 2015 Jeep JK has been added to the family. JD works as a Systems Engineer for a cable company and Jen runs a business from their home during the week to pay the bills. When the weekend hits, they're almost always hitting the trail. When Sunday night rolls around, the question turns to, 'so what's next week?!'.
