Matt Russo

Mapping Crew - Colorado

Matt is an avid off-roader/outdoors-man getting his start in Virginia. At the age of 18 Matt bought his first Jeep and as we say, the rest is history. Since moving to Colorado in 2010 Matt was introduced to the long, scenic trails in places like Ouray, Telluride, COBDR and Moab. This is where his love for overlanding, back country and camping really took foot. Matt is a GIS Analyst by trade so mapping is his jam. You can find him all summer long spending his weekends in remote locations in the mountains living out of his roof top ttent.

Recent Trip Reports

Halfmoon Creek 06-25-2017

Right Side of the Trail was open all the way up to the Mill. The gate to the Mill was unlocked and open. 1 Large water crossing about 2-3' deep right at the Mount Massive Trail Head. Once you got through the water you had the entire area to yourself. I did not take the left side but have heard it is not passable as of yet.
