Trail Information

Highlights

Located on the western slope of Colorado near Grand Junction, Billings Canyon Jeep Trail is an extreme trail for purpose-built vehicles. This hardcore offroad trail will test the limits of both man and machine as you work through a narrow one-way canyon within the Bang Canyon Management Areas. The Grand Mesa Jeep Club built the trail in the early 2000s in partnership with the BLM and other 4x4 enthusiasts. Big tires and big suspension are a must to traverse through the relentless onslaught of massive boulders, tall ledges, and deep holes. 35" Tires, a winch, dual lockers, and rollover protection are highly recommended for this trail.

Ran this as part of the 2020 Unlimited LJ Adventure. The trail starts out a little slow with small rocks and sporadic small obstacles, but once you hit waypoint 6, the trail is consistently technical.

The first Time I ran this trail I was not at all prepared, lacking a front locker and off-road driving skill had us on the trail for 10 hours. The second time it did, it only took 4 hours and that’s because an XJ had to tow another XJ! Have done it several times since and it’s a blast. This trail is aN absolute must!

A great trail for the hardcore wheeler. The sign at the start says 35s, and I can only imagine how long the trail will take on that size tire. Be sure to have rocker protection and a winch also.
