I’m a Colorado Off-Roader and I decided to make trail guides on YouTube and videos for new off-roaders using stock-ish vehicles. I’m still learning myself, but I’ve been in a wrangler for 20 years so I’ve picked up some stuff along the way and will share it. I will try to add trail reports here after runs. I use TrailsOffRoad and FunTreks books for trail planning and believe my YouTube guides are an adjunct but not replacement to these resources. So I’d love if you check them out and let me know how I’m doing, the channel is Dewie’s Colorado.

I was going to build this one up with a 2.5in lift and 33in tires... but I’m going to leave it stock for one more summer so I can accurately judge trail difficulty for stock vehicles. However, I’ll start the build early if I get a JLU Willy’s (I really want to wheel that and prove 4 doors can wheel well on their stock suspensions).

Coon Hollow (05/28/2021)
Could not get past mile 3.7. Road closed sign where you enter the wash as described. We found that a blue sign saying authorized vehicles only (screenshot pic below) provides access to the trail probably 300 ft earlier than as described here, but we weren’t sure what the blue sign’s deal was. We walked it instead of driving. Trail seemed fine and looks fun for what we walked and there were fresh tire tracks so I’m guessing people are using it. Anyone know what the story is here. Update: My buddy got a reply from the BLM saying it was closed due to fire damage. Another wheeler told me the BLM told him it’s open all the way and that the signs may be misplaced.
