Highlights

Highlight: Nolan Creek
Located in the White River National Forest, Nolan Creek is an easy off-road trail that offers great camping opportunities, with some excellent forest scenery, abundant serenity, and endless miles of hiking opportunities. This road passes by the historic town of Fulford, which is known as the least populated town in Colorado. This town once housed as many as 600 people in the early 1900s, but by 2010, it only had 2 full-time residents. Explore the surrounding wilderness, and maybe you will just so happen to find the lost mining treasures that so many men have sought to find over the years.

Hi, I'm Ryan! I am a Colorado native and I've been wheeling since I was 16 years old. I grew up with a relentless passion for all things Jeep and off road related, and that passion has never died out. I am a member of the Mile-Hi Jeep Club, Patrol 16 Sasquatch Jeepers and currently own an '06 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited (LJ) nicknamed "Minion". I am a huge supporter of Stay the Trail and Tread Lightly, and have participated and even been in charge of many trail restoration projects. I have been a trail leader several times for events such as All-4-Fun, ColoradoFest, Set Them Free, 14er Fest, and other. I am also the creator of the Unlimited LJ Adventure. My rig is built for extreme offroading, but I love to get my tires dirty on any kind of trail whether it's rock crawling or just scenic high Alpine drives. I've wheeled all over the country including Colorado, Utah, Kansas, the Carolinas, AZ, and California. I love a great adventure, and love even more to share those adventures with others. If you see the "minion" out on the trail, make sure to stop and say hello.
