Recently moved to COS, and my wife and I love the outdoors. We really enjoy backpacking and hiking in Colorado. We have also taken up riding the backroads and getting those great views without a multi-hour hike.

Mt. Rosa (06/06/2021)
Nice easy trail with some fun offshoot to play in. Not many views either, but you can hike to some good view of COS.
Longwater Gulch (05/22/2021)
Fun trail with some very nice view. Easy to get to from CS/Divide. A few minor obstacles, and one good challenge (steep rock that can require a sharp turn right before it. Saw several rigs get their rear tire a foot off the ground while making the turn/decent. Ran this the same day as Longwater Gulch (both out and back trails that can be done the same day).
Hackett Gulch (05/22/2021)
Good short trail with two significant challenges, and a few other challenges. Ran in new stock JLUR with no issue, but two scraps. We did witness a significant issue that needed to be winched out on obstacle 1, so stay alert all the time!! Ran this the same day as Longwater Gulch (both out and back trails.
Flake Road aka Illinois Gulch (01/16/2021)
Went to the Rainbow Fall area and had good time. Not to crowded, but needed to watch for bikes and ATV's. Ride up to Little Moab was a nice trail with a few challenges. Not mudding so pretty easy. DId only a small section of Little Moab as not setup to run those steps yet. Fun watching other try. Was able to find a few other obstacles that did challenge the stock JLU Rubicon, and those were fun to tackle. Nice park and will be back to take on more!
