Tim Palmer

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Tim lives and works in Northern Colorado. He has owned and driven 4X4 vehicles his entire adult life including Jeeps, pick ups, ATVs and UTVs. After high school, Tim's first 4X4 was a 47 Willy's CJ-2A with a flat 4 and a 6-volt electrical system. Typically wheeling in Northern Colorado or Southern Wyoming, Tim loves being in the mountains and the back country. Because of a desire to enjoy and promote responsible off-roading and to keep it available for the future, he belongs to a local 4X4 off-road club. Being part of the community furthers that goal as well. A love for off-road adventures, camping, fishing, and hunting keeps Tim away from pavement and always exploring. While his wife likes the comfort of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Tim prefers the ruggedness of the Jeep Wrangler. Although most off-road time is spent in Colorado and Wyoming, an occasional trip to the Moab area is common. Tim will spend the summer going topless and enjoying the value of the great outdoors.

Recent Trip Reports

Deadman Road 07-09-2017

Deadman Road is open and in good shape. Because of the dry conditions, dust is a concern while driving. With many blind corners and dusty conditions, please drive carefully. Most off-road trails in the vicinity are open. Although mostly dry, some trails have isolated standing water resulting in some patchy mud conditions. The connecting trail, Green Ridge Road is still closed because of downfall blocking much of the trail. The Forest Service is working on clearing the path.

Acme Creek Road 07-09-2017

This trail remains closed so far. While there today, I spoke with the local Forest Service Ranger who explained that this trail experienced an exceptional amount of down trees over the winter and spring season. Forest Service crews have been working the trail to clear the downfall and it is expected to be open by mid-July.

Bald Mountain 07-09-2017

Bald Mountain is open and in good shape ready for summer wheeling. The rocky first half of the trail is dry. The latter part of the trail is muddy and wet, but easily passable. During this trip, I observed numerous UTVs and ATVs on the trail, but no other other types of vehicles.
