My Trail Reviews (10)
(within last 6 months)
We took this trail on our way to Kingston Peak. Basically the road is a connector to other trails in the area. It is rocky and nothing technical. There were some nice dispersed camping spots along the way.
Ran this trail today with my Land Cruiser and our sons 4Runner. Only aired down to 25psi would definitely recommend going at minimum 20psi. The views are amazing. No problems other than testing out the skids and sliders a few times. This trail is rough from start to finish along with narrow shelf road most of the way. Just take your time, you will mainly be running 4Lo and first or second gear most of the way. The steep hill climbs need some good tire placement in places, but nothing serious. Long day, but a lot of fun!
Did this again just for a quick overnight from Fort Collins. So many dispersed camping options! Had a great night, although when we returned to FC the next day we saw that they had just closed Hwy 14 from Rustic to Walden from a fire up near Chambers Lake. Guess we got out just in time. Super easy trail with great camping! Hopefully they can get the fire under control soon!
We took Sugarloaf Mountain Road From 72 to the trail head. This adds about 6 miles of easy wheeling to the trail. Switzerland is easy and rocky. If you don't like shelf roads though, then this is not your trail. It is super fun and requires every bit of you attention. you will want to air down for sure on this trail. I only went down to 25psi, but i think 20psi would have been the better option. Only saw one other vehicle on the trail today and fortunately going the same direction! Great views in all directions.
What a great trail! Ran it South to North today. Water crossings were easy, very rocky most of the trail until the rock garden. Then it gets really rocky. Much different than the photos in the description, but with good wheel placement, most good stock 4x4’s shouldn’t have any trouble. Definitely a good idea to air down just to keep from getting the crap beat out of you. Very little OHV traffic leaving early. Can’t wait to do it again!
This was a nice fun little spur trail. Plenty of camping just about everywhere you look. Combine this with a few other trails in the area for a fun day.
Ran this trail in the Cruiser today from East to west. A very fun trail! Mostly easy, no significant obstacles, a lot of fun hill climbs. There are a few sections from the burn area west, that will test out your approach, breakover, and and departure angles😃. Highly recommend!
Fun trail with some great views, nothing technical at all, basically a dirt road. A nice off the beaten path trail from others in the area though. We didn't see another sole for two days. Found some really great dispersed camping as we got closer to the Laramie River road. They were doing some maintenance on the lower section of the road towards Fort Collins and putting down some really nasty stuff on the road as we drove through. But for a less crowded experience, very nice!
We started in Blanding on Elk Mountain and hooked up to Woodenshoe. It is a very remote area that doesn’t see a lot of traffic. The trail is mostly easy with a few rocky areas along the way. Those most difficult area I would say is a long steep rocky uphill along a shelf road that ends at the top with a sharp left that it’s hard to see the road as you make the turn. Other than that it’s a beautiful drive through the desert. One note is that all of the diverse campsites that we found along the way would be great for a rooftop tent, but if you have to pound any stakes, they all sit on solid rock. We ended up having to go all the way to Hite. A long day but well worth it!
What a great trail! We started in Blanding and hooked up with Woodenshoe. The scenery is beautiful and diverse. The switchbacks going down at the beginning are narrow and a bit of a pucker factor, especially if you meet oncoming traffic, because there is nowhere to go. Other than that, it’s just a beautiful, mostly easy drive. Nothing technical. Very highly recommend!
