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?!'.

Hackett Gulch (10/11/2020)
Just went to the first big overlook on the trail and back out. The metal signs are still there as of today.
Turkey Bay OHV Primary Yellow 04 (10/11/2020)
This was my last trail I had time to do while at Turkey Bay and it was just as fun as the rest of the trails in the area but over pretty quick, and not quite as muddy as some of the others.
Cedar Mountain Road (10/11/2020)
Beautiful as always. We took some family along this mild one for the fun of a first time off road as passengers. Sections continue to get rougher, not changing the rating, just making the overall trail bumpier.
Elevenmile Canyon Road (10/11/2020)
Went out with some family to check this out during the late afternoon. Still pretty even though the water is pretty low.
Ensign Gulch (10/10/2020)
There was a fire off one of the Ensign Gulch spurs that was quickly contained. This should serve as a reminder that there is currently a state-wide fire ban in Colorado and no campfires are allowed. Ensign Gulch Fire Time Reported: 6/010/20 at 2:01 pm Size: 0.1 acres Location: Park County, Pikes Peak Ranger District, 4 miles NE of Woodland Park, CO, at the end of Forest Service Rd 314B Jurisdiction: USFS, CO.

McClellan Mountain (10/05/2020)
Drove up there yesterday to get images of the new fencing at Waldorf Mine. The remediation work continues at that site and those areas have been blocked off while leaving some parking areas for people. Made it all the way up to the summit and boy was it windy up there towards the end of the day. I did not make it to the end of this trail since the shelf road had just enough snow on it to make me not want to risk the off-camber. Some folks on short ATV's made it over the snow, but they said that they wouldn't have wanted to do it in a larger vehicle.
Argentine Pass (10/05/2020)
Made the annual solo trip to the summits, and actually made it this year though I did see snow near the trail. Waldorf mine (officially private property) is officially closed. We knew this was coming after talking with Trout Unlimited earlier this year. The site is still toxic and work is still underway to remove chemicals in the soil and keep it out of the drinking water that flows down into Denver.
RIM Road (09/25/2020)
There was a fire in the area on 9/25. The small fire doesn't appear to have impacted much but the information is here for future reference: Rim Road Fire See updates below, just above the map Time Reported: 9/25/20 at 1:18 pm Size: 2 acres Location: Douglas County, South Platte Ranger District, 12 miles WSW of Castle Rock.

Firefighters have cleared the incident and will return in the morning. Map of location:
EOS Mill (09/13/2020)
This is part of the triplet trails that lead out to Crossons in the burn area. The latter part of EOS mill opens to some really pretty scenery due to the openness left by the burn.
Redskin Road (09/13/2020)
I like this trail for the access to the area it provides and some of the scenery along the way is nice but the washboards are killer on the Jeep and on me.
Burns Park Road (08/26/2020)
We really enjoyed this trail even though some of the traffic before waypoint 6 was kind of annoying. After that though, it was a nice trip in the forest and we stopped for lunch at waypoint 11.
Engineer Pass (08/25/2020)
Special Notice: This year's spring rains in the area created a lot of soft ledges and dirt along Engineer Pass. Specifically, the attached pictures are taken from a spot where four vehicles have fallen through a washout. While we hope there will be some signage before a permanent fix is put in, be aware of the area between waypoints 1 and 9. Pictures from H&M Towing & Recovery
Thorpe Road (08/23/2020)

Thorpe Road (08/15/2020)
This trail had some pretty scenery but I wouldn't run this one on its own. In the fall though, we plan to return to this area to get to the aspens at peak color.
Elevenmile Canyon Road (08/15/2020)
This trail and the connecting area took far to long for us to find and I'm glad we did. The views along the canyon were amazing and we can't wait to go back on a weekday when there is a little less traffic. Looking forward to spending more time on this trail and the ones that connect to it.

Ensign Gulch (08/08/2020)
Ensign Gulch is part of a group of trails that I really like near Monument. Since this trail is close to Mt. Herman Road, it's easy to get in, have a little time in the dirt, and get back out if my schedule doesn't allow. It's just a pretty drive and the terrain keeps the driving interesting.
Northfield Road (08/08/2020)
I give this one a 4 instead of a 3 star because the views are really amazing. If I'm wheeling in this area again, I'll head down here to see growth of the new forest and chase some fun light for photography.
Farish Memorial Road (08/08/2020)
There isn't anything terribly exciting on this trail but I would camp here because the views are pretty decent and if you get back towards the end of the trail, there isn't much traffic. Ensign Gulch is a must do for me, so I'll take this to Ensign, to Beaver, to Mt Herman and out of the network.
Ormes Peak Road (08/08/2020)
I ran this trail while doing mapping in the area and this turned out a be a scenic surprise. Since it runs through the burn, the landscape is stark but stunning as well. Highly recommend this one for folks that live nearby and if you're in the area.
