Highlights

Highlight: Moody Hill
Moody Hill is an awesome rock crawling trail located 30 minutes west of Fort Collins, CO. It offers an exciting steep climb into the Roosevelt National Forest and ending at The Quarry, a rock crawling garden, that's not for the faint of heart. It is a popular area for local offroaders and it's common to see large groups here taking turns pushing the limits of their rigs. This trail is a must do for the locals and traveling rock crawlers alike, if in the area be sure to check it out.
