Highlights

Highlight: Sevenmile Road
Sevenmile Road is a beautiful 4x4 trail that takes you up the Sevenmile Creek Valley into Red Feather Lakes and the Roosevelt National Forest. This route was originally established by gold miners in the late 1800's and you can see some of the cabins still to this day. As Sevenmile continues up the valley it crosses the creek several times, sometimes the creek even runs down the trail, for an exciting and unique ride. This is also a year-round trail with the conditions always changing with the passing seasons making this trail an off-road destination no matter what time of year it is. Sevenmile is also home to several optional obstacles suitable for more built vehicles and other types of off-road transportation. Overall, Sevenmile Road is a must do trail for any off-road enthusiast.

Bradley & Rhea Mikkelson

Mapping Crew - Colorado and South Dakota

Bradley and Rhea are currently living in the quaint little town of Fairburn, South Dakota with their two daughters, Riley and Dakota, and their dog Nyx. Bradley was raised in Northern Colorado, while Rhea was raised in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Growing up in these environments, the mountains are where they like to spend their free time. Since meeting in July 2011, they have been fishing, camping, and wheeling together ever since. For the Mikkelson family, owning a Jeep is essential to the mountaineering lifestyle. They currently have three Jeeps, a built 1995 Jeep Cherokee, A mildly built 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and a bone-stock 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. As a volunteer wildland firefighter, TrailsOffroad mapping crew and avid nature lovers, the Mikkelson's strongly encourage responsible trail usage, respect for our forests, always stay the trail, pack out what you pack in, and enjoy the adventure!
