What we're about

We aim to plan well-communicated and organized trail runs throughout Colorado and beyond. Our trips will limit the number of rigs and MAY "recommend" minimum vehicle specifications for certain trails in order to keep runs manageable, safe, and fun. Please ensure you check out trail descriptions on traildamage.com, trailsoffroad.com, etc. or in guidebooks before rsvping to ensure you are qualified for a trail. We welcome all 4x4 vehicles and while we are mainly a Colorado group, out of state members are also encouraged to join and attend runs while visiting Colorado. We will plan day trips as well as some overnights and a few longer trips. If you have a trail/date request, please feel free to message the organizers and we can try to set something up!

Before signing up for a run, please fill out your bio within Colorado Rock Crawlers (different from your overall meet-up bio) with rig specs (tire size, lockers, lift, recovery gear, etc) and experience (years, most difficult trails completed, etc) as well as any special skills you may have (recovery, spotting, etc.) This information will be used to determine suitability for more difficult runs. If you sign up for a more difficult trail and do not have a bio and do not respond to messages from organizers regarding this information you will be dropped from the run to allow those on the wait list to move up. This requirement is in place for safety!

Because we have a limited number of rigs on runs, please make sure to remove yourself from runs you cannot attend to allow those on the wait list to move up. Multiple no-shows will result in removal from the group. Only RSVP for your rig and guest rigs (NOT passengers). Some runs will not allow guest rigs in order to ensure suitability. If you know someone who wants to go along please have them sign up in meetup and fill out a bio and then RSVP.

Please be on time! Be courteous and show respect to our trail leaders. Ensure you are adhering to trail etiquette. No going off trail, littering, illegal activity, inappropriate behavior etc. Please come prepared with a full tank of gas, water, and anything you may need for a long day on the trail.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to message me (Donna Young) Thanks!!

Upcoming events (3)

Red Cone to Montezuma via Webster Pass

Needs a location

Trail has some narrow areas, rocky sections, off camber locations and very steep spots. Spectacular views! 33" tires and above recommended. Please ensure your profile is updated with rig specs and experience. I will contact you directly if I feel this is not the trail for you but most stock rigs shouldn't have an issue.

We may split at radical hill if some want to take that route.

Please make sure to gas up before reaching the trail head. There is a loaf n jug at CR 43a before Bailey. As always, bring water, snacks and whatever else you may need if it takes longer to get off the trail than planned. The top of Red Cone is normally very windy and the temperature is dropping so jackets are also recommended.

Wheeler Lake - Park County

Needs a location

I won't be listing minimum trail requirements for this run but please make sure you take a look at the trail and only RSVP if you are capable. This trail has a few of pretty tough obstacles. If you sign up and don't appear to have the rig for it, I will let you know.

Meet at the EAST PARKING LOT which is the big parking lot next to the reservoir, not the trail head parking. (I REPEAT, EAST! NOT THE MAIN LOT WHERE MOST RIGS STAGE) Be fueled up and ready to go at 9:30am. Please look at the map pin for location.

Pack a lunch, bring some camp chairs and we will have a picnic at Wheeler Lake.

Pearl Pass from Aspen to Crested Butte and on to Marble via Schofield Pass

Recommended Equipment: 35” tires, tow strap, lockers.

Please read the descriptions of each of the passes before RSVPing. This run is rocky and narrow at points with very steep drop offs and not for the faint of heart.

Schofield Pass Description - Schofield Pass, a narrow and scenic road only for very experienced drivers in CO (dangerousroads.org)

Pear Pass Description - Pearl Pass is one of the last roads to open in Colorado (dangerousroads.org)

We will start in Aspen, head south through the Ashcroft ghost town, then take Pearl Pass into Crested Butte, where we will stop for a quick lunch (either pack a lunch or grab something to go at a local spot). Then we will head over Schofield Pass through Crystal and end in Marble where we can have dinner at Slow Groovin BBQ. On this run you will see iconic sites including Maroon Bells and Crystal Mill.
