Highlights

Highlight: Quarry Road
This moderate trail near Woodland Park, Colorado has a gem of an obstacle that doesn't get a lot of attention because of its well-known neighbors. The trail is not long, but the long Rock Climb will test new and experienced drivers but is a little less intimidating than the nearby Moab Hill on Flake Road. The reward for climbing the obstacle is a nice drive through the Colorado forest that breaks out into some scenic views of the Front Range and Pike's Peak. This trail is part of the Rainbow Falls Trail Network in southern Colorado, an approximately 15 square-mile section of the Pike National Forest with miles of dirt to explore. The area is open year-round and is a popular destination for the Front Range of Colorado.

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?!'.
