I currently drive a 2012 JKU Rubicon, and I am a member of Patrol 14 of the Mile-Hi Jeep Club. I have been off-roading for 6+ years. I enjoy scenic trails that provide some relaxation and more moderate challenges, but I really enjoy getting out and seeing the amazing scenery and history of Colorado.

Cascade Creek (09/18/2021)
Three of us from Patrol 14 of Mile-Hi Jeep Club ran this trail. Two of our Jeeps were on 33's and one was on 37's. No one had any issues with the trail, and the obstacles made for a fun day out. The main goal was to see some color changes in the aspens and enjoy a day out with friends. Overall, I think the rating is spot on. Stock or low clearance vehicles may have some trouble with the obstacles. I don't have any pictures of the difficult obstacles. The pictures represent the beginning of the trail relatively and the end of the trail relatively (sorry, the challenging stuff is in-between).
Griffin Mountain and Woodchuck Spur (09/18/2021)
Three of us from Patrol 14 of Mile-Hi Jeep Club ran this trail along with Cascade Creek. It is a very short spur, and I think it is more difficult coming back down than going up. Coming down makes it harder to choose the best lines over some of the obstacles and can give you some mild off-camber sensation along with coming off rocks in a way that is not quite as smooth as going up. At the top of the spur is a great spot to have lunch at the end of Cascade Creek. Also, the MVUM map goes a bit further than the trail itself. That is a little unusual. The trail ends at a small loop to turn around.
Ute Creek Road (09/18/2021)
This is primarily a road, and it is pretty boring overall. It is really just a way to get back down to the highway. Some local residents were putting dirt down on the lower portion of the trail, and this may have filled in some of the washed out areas mentioned below.
