Highlights

Highlight: Packer Gulch Road
Just west of the Tarryall Reservoir, Packer Gulch Road is a high-altitude off-road trail in an area full of flatter terrain. This isolated road climbs to nearly alpine heights between two 11,000 feet peaks in the Badger Mountain Trail Network. The trees do not often break for views. Drivers still enjoy the switchbacks and offroad driving to the highest point you can take a vehicle in the entire network. Just past the trail's end is a large campsite that can provide a launching pad for a weekend of exploring the area.

JD Marshall

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?!'.
