Hi, I'm Ryan! I am a Colorado native and I've been wheeling since I was 16 years old. I grew up with a relentless passion for all things Jeep and off road related, and that passion has never died out. I am a member of the Mile-Hi Jeep Club, Patrol 16 Sasquatch Jeepers and currently own an '06 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited (LJ) nicknamed "Minion". I am a huge supporter of Stay the Trail and Tread Lightly, and have participated and even been in charge of many trail restoration projects. I have been a trail leader several times for events such as All-4-Fun, ColoradoFest, Set Them Free, 14er Fest, and other. I am also the creator of the Unlimited LJ Adventure. My rig is built for extreme offroading, but I love to get my tires dirty on any kind of trail whether it's rock crawling or just scenic high Alpine drives. I've wheeled all over the country including Colorado, Utah, Kansas, the Carolinas, AZ, and California. I love a great adventure, and love even more to share those adventures with others. If you see the "minion" out on the trail, make sure to stop and say hello.

(within last 6 months)
Rampart Range Road (03/04/2021)
As stated below, the seasonal gates on both ends are closed but you can access the road in the center via Mount Herman.
Ryan (03/04/2021)

Happy Platte Road (03/01/2021)
Seasonal Closure now in effect.
Lost Park Road (03/01/2021)
Seasonal Gate has now been closed. You can still travel to waypoint 8 as mentioned in the report below.
Rollins Pass East (01/31/2021)
Made it 6.5 miles up today. The snow is incredibly lack luster and sad right now for the time of year. With that said, there is still a number of deep, soft drifts. Be careful with your decisions. On our way out we saw 2 different rigs traveling alone, with zero winch points and street tires. That is not a good decision for winter wheeling.
Mammoth Gulch (01/31/2021)
The road is super icy and dangerous. It's deceiving because the road is really dry at the beginning. But as soon as you get into the trees it's very icy under a very thin layer of snow. Made it shy of a half mile before deep soft snow keeps you from going any farther.
Independence Trail (01/16/2021)
The trail has changed a lot at Bunker Hill. Some new boulders, some old boulders gone. Getting pretty beat up and well used out there. Trail was dry.
Patriot Trail (01/16/2021)
Good day with no carnage. The trail is dry. As stated in the previous review, Coffin rock is really filled in and it's not really an issue anymore. The exit wall is getting bigger as rock chunks from the top keep breaking off.
Griffin Mountain and Woodchuck Spur (01/03/2021)
Trail was a blast today, even though we didn't make it far on this one. Beyond wp3 it is impassable with extremely deep sugar snow. Hiked over to the cell tower. Super windy over there.
South Spring Gulch (01/03/2021)
I can't comment on the entire trail since I only ran a small section of it. We entered this trail at wp7 after coming from Cascade Creek. There are tracks all over the trails out here. From conditions I saw on the other trails, you can likely get all the way to the junction of South Spring Gulch and Saxon Mountain, but I can't confirm that. We ran the trail to the mine play area between wp9 and wp10, and then took Ute Creek down to 103. A lot of bare dirt patches along the section we drove. Trail is very tracked out and has been heavily used lately.
Ute Creek Road (01/03/2021)
Surprisingly, this trail is 100% passable right now. We ran it from the top down after coming from Cascade Creek, to Molly Brown, and then to South Spring Gulch. The trail is extremely tracked out. It has been heavily used since the last storm. Lot's of dirt still and the snow wasn't more than 8"-10" at its deepest. No big drifts to deal with. Until a few big back to back snows come in, this was be traversable for awhile. I didn't get really any good photos of conditions just because there was literally nothing to take pics of. You can see in the one photo though how bare Mt Evans is and the surrounding hills.
Cascade Creek (01/03/2021)
Trail was GREAT today! Made it extremely far for this time of year. The trail was extremely tracked out and appears to be heavily used since the last snow. Snow is extremely wind blown sugar snow, so very little traction. Between wp9 and wp10 there is a dangerous ice flow to be aware of. 39.714156, -105.658859. We made it a few hundred yards beyond wp10 to a steep uphill climb that was really slick and icy. We couldn't make it up and opted to turn around rather than winch the hill. There were tracks on the hill however, most likely coming downhill from South Spring Gulch.
Lost Park Road (01/01/2021)
The dates listed for opening here are not correct. The seasonal closure dates of this trail are 3/1-6/15. Recent reports suggest the trail is snowy and icy and could be impassable to some vehicles.
Bordenville Gulches (01/01/2021)
Seasonal Closure on this trail has begun. Jan 1- Jun 15 are the dates it is closed. This closure was put into effect as part of the Pike San Isabel Travel Management lawsuit settlement. Details can be found here: https://www.fs.usda.gov/nfs/11558/www/nepa/102995_FSPLT3_2604583.pdf
Slaughterhouse Gulch (01/01/2021)
The seasonal closure of this trail started today.
Old Fall River Road (12/22/2020)
The fire closure is no longer in effect. However, the trail is no closed for the winter season.
Fourmile Area: Fourmile Creek (12/22/2020)
Open until waypoint 5 where the seasonal closure starts.
Slaughterhouse Gulch (12/19/2020)
Lots of snow, lots of ice. Very slippery and sketchy conditions. Don't head in here alone. I stopped at waypoint 2 and walked a ways in, down the counterclockwise direction. Didn't see any tracks heading that way or coming back out. Saw a few trucks come out from the clockwise direction where there were a lot of tracks.
The Chutes (12/15/2020)
Due to snowy and icy conditions, this section of trail might be impassable to traverse or even reach at this time of year.
Cascade Creek (12/15/2020)
Snow packed and icy throughout the entire trail. Do not attempt from the west side. Snow busting should only be attempted from the east side out of Idaho Springs. Not recommended for stock vehicles. Go prepared to get stuck and self recover.
Strawberry Road (12/15/2020)
This trail is now under seasonal closure until June.
Rock Creek (12/15/2020)
Snow packed and icy throughout the entire trail. Although open, the terrain makes this trail very difficult to run in the snow. It is extremely popular and busy with cross country skiers, Best to leave this trail to them for the winter. It's just not a worthy winter wheeling spot.
Sidewinder (12/15/2020)
The Wolford Mountain area is now under its seasonal closure. See you in April!
Button Rock (12/04/2020)

T-33 Plane Crash (12/01/2020)
Seasonal Gates have been closed.
Bunce School Road (12/01/2020)
The seasonal Gates have been closed. This closes the southern portion of the trail between Waypoints 12-14. You can still access the Northern end of the trail which remains open all year.
Pole Hill (11/30/2020)
This trail is now outside of the Cameron Peak fire closure and was open for the last few weeks. However, the seasonal closure starts on Dec 1st.
Grizzly Jeep Trail (11/23/2020)
This road is seasonally closed 11/23-5/20.
Coffee Pot Road (11/23/2020)
This road is seasonally closed 11/23-5/20.
White Owl Lake (11/23/2020)
The fire has been contained, and this trail is no longer within a fire closure. However, this road is seasonally closed 11/23-5/20.
Lost Park Road (11/22/2020)
Trail was clear the whole way. It was very dry with mostly dirt showing and only a few stretches of packed snow. This road is EXTREMELY wash boardy. It will rattle your teeth out if you aren't aired down. Trail was packed today with a bunch of people getting Christmas trees.
Georgia Pass (11/22/2020)
Considering tomorrow that the north side of the trail will close for the season, I think it's safe to say the pass is impassable. However, today we were able to make it to the summit from the south side out of Jefferson. The trail had some very hard packed snow, but not a lot of it. We didn't attempt to go down the north side because it had deeper sugar snow and we didn't want to mess with that today.
Topaz Mountain/Wallace Gulch (11/22/2020)
Ran the trail in reverse today. Between waypoint 12 and 7, it is pretty tight in there and only going to get worse over the years as a ton of new trees line both sides of the road bed. The old truck isn't there anymore, so it must have been pulled out. As for current conditions, the trail was mostly snow packed with a few icy sections. It has been very tracked out since the last snow storm, and it doesn't appears any large storms have hit the area yet. Not more than 6"-8" of snow anywhere on the ground. Nice trail.
T-33 Plane Crash (11/19/2020)
The fire ban closure has been lifted and the seasonal gate is still currently open. The forest service told me on the 16th that it was open and did not give me an ETA for closure. I ran Bunce School Road on wednesday, the 18th and can confirm the gates are still open. Not much snow or ice along Bunce, probably the reason the seasonal gate is still open, but right at the start of Park Creek, the trail that feeds into t33, there was a small amount of snow since it's very shady there. Not sure how many more weekend that gate will remain open, even if we don't get snow, so probably call Boulder Ranger District before heading out.
Caribou Creek (North) (11/18/2020)
Ran the trail and re-mapped the entire thing south to north. Trail was surprisingly dry for this time of year and in good shape. There was a vehicle I quickly came across that had blown a rear tire. He did not have any tools so I helped him change the tire and he turned around and headed back out. After that I was the only other vehicle along the route. The mud holes were frozen solid but were still very deep. The creek crossing had a lot of ice, but was not deep with water at all. The gates were still open on 11/23 per the forest service, so I assume they will remain open through the end of the month.
Bunce School Road (11/18/2020)
The seasonal gate is still currently open. The forest service told me on the 16th that it was open and did not give me an ETA for closure. I ran the trail on a wednesday, mid week, and it was still busy with rental OHVs. Not much snow or ice along the trail, probably the reason the seasonal gate is still open.

Boulder County Road 68J (11/18/2020)
Trail was dry and snow-free. Without a GPS or a very good map, this road would be hard to find. The locals do as much signage as possible to try and keep traffic out. Stay on the county road and you will have no problems. This is a nice relaxing drive. Although I did it during the week, I didn't see any other vehicles along the road, only a couple of hikers. This is a very good beginner trail in my opinion.
Beaver Creek (11/12/2020)
Not under any forest closure. Open until seasonal closure takes effect. May be impassable due to snow.

Gypsum Creek Road (11/07/2020)
I have read conflicting information regarding the fishing at LEDE Reservoir. Some sources say the fishing is good, others say there are no fish at all. I didn't throw a line in, so I can't speak to that part, but the plethora of camping options along this road were really nice. Seeings that I visited on a fall day, deep into hunting season, there were not any weekend campers around, but I expect this area can get pretty busy seeing how close to town it is and how easily accessable it is as well. It offers some great views, even on a clowdy day.
Brush-Gypsum Road (11/07/2020)
Although technically open and passable at the time I ran it, the trail was extremely sketchy due to a couple of snowy and icy sections in the thick trees. The mud was also really slick in one spot where the truck crab walked for about 15 yards. If any more snow has fallen since the 7th, I would not recommend taking this road in a full-size 4wd. A small, lightweight vehicle such as an ATV or side by side would be best. As for the road itself, it was not very exciting. A lot of tree cover so not very many views except at the very start. There are a couple of cool campsites once you get close to Sylvan Lake.
Stony Pass (10/29/2020)
This trail is not seasonally closed until 3/15. Although it might be impassable, the seasonal closure is only a couple of months long, in the spring.

The San Juan National Forest side of the pass does not have a seasonal designation and is opened via dozer when conditions allow.

Recent snowstorms have rendered the trail impassable. It's unlikely the trail will melt out again this year.

Monument Rocks (10/24/2020)
Awesome trail, and a perfect time of year to run it. Man it sure was dusty, but the weather was not too hot. It was cold first thing in the morning but warmed up nicely. There are a lot of great camping spots along this road and some really cool views too. I wasn't sure what to expect besides some dirt road blasting, but there are a lot of things that make you want to slow down and take in the scenery.
Coal Canyon (10/24/2020)
Driving through the wash at the beginning reminds you a lot of 21 road, minus all the boulders. The climb up out of the canyon to reach the overlooks at the bookcliffs is surprisingly steep! Put the vehicle in low range and you should have no problems. If it's wet, I can see this being a slick descent from the top. The view from the top is so incredibly awesome! Well worth the drive.
North Soda (10/24/2020)
This trail doesn't offer any obstacles, nor is it the most exciting drive, but the cabin at the end is really cool and there are a lot of good camping options along this road. If you are looking to "get away from it all" but still be close to town, this is a great option for that. We only saw one ATV the entire time we were on the trail, on a gorgeous fall Saturday.
Corcoran Wash/Dry Creek (10/24/2020)
Super easy dirt drive with a couple of cool stops along the way. Only a few campsites, none of which provide any shade. The hoodoos are really cool to see. Passed by a TON of gas/oil pads. The damage from the Pine Gulch fire is pretty crazy to see. Glad to see the road system was used as a good fire break. A great example of why roads should remain open for public use so that they can be used for solid fire breaks in the future.

Trail is currently open all the way through again with only the lands south of the road closed due to the fire.

Finally a clean run through this trail! 3rd time I've ran it and first time without winching. Took 13 LJs in and finished the main pritchett portion in 4.5hrs. Then of course the drive out through behind the rocks always takes forever!
Hells Revenge (09/14/2020)
Great day on the trail. We ran Hells as the final day in Moab during the 2020 Unlimited LJ Adventure. Plenty of traffic still for it being a monday. It was a little warm, but still a great day. I woukd agree with some previous comments that the section coming out of the trail is getting a bit beat up. Also, note that the parking lot at the very end is currently very limited because it is being used for construction, so there is not as much open trailer parking as there once was.
