Mapping Crew - Colorado

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 and ColoradoFest. I was also the trip coordinator for the 2014 All-4-Fun in Silverton, CO.

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 great state of Colorado, been to Moab, wheeled a number of times in AZ, and I have even ran the historic Rubicon Trail. 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.

Miners Gulch 10-15-2017

This was my very first time on this trail, I think. I can't ever remember running this trail before, and I'm pretty sure I would have remembered. We ran the trail from north to south, and in my opinion, that is a better, more challenging way to run it as you are working your way uphill against the obstacles. The trail was dry in the sunny sections, but most of this trail has really good shade coverage so a few inches of snow covered most of the trail. There was no running water across the trail. Any spots where this may have been the case earlier in the year had either dried out, or were completely frozen over. Overall, this was a really fun trail. I would definitely say it is the most challenging trail in the area, but it is really difficult to find.
