    Default Hey Guys

    On a recent motorcycle trip out west myself and wife drove through Colorado down the million dollar highway, found ourselves checking out all these Jeep's heading into the mountain passes in Ouray and Silverton. Sparked an interest, started watching some videos of the incredible wheeling out there and boom we are owners of a 2012 jku. Very interested in finding leagle trails to explore in New England. Any hot tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to ENH, and congrats on the recent acquisition!

    Since winter closes down most of the class 6 roads here in NH, things become a bit quiet around here, with the exception of private land trips. Folks use this time to fix and upgrade their rigs in prep for season opening come Spring.

    I'd also like to mention that we run an intro to offroading course in the Spring. It is a great time to meet new and seasoned members, as well as learn the basis of offroading, recovery, and Tread Lightly.

    Looking forward to meeting up on the trails!

    I've been going to Silverton and Ouray for the last 5 years. Last August I stayed in Silveton. More hotels and restaurants in Ouray and more trail heads in Silverton. Poughkeepsi Gulch is my personal favorite. Black Bear Pass is fun trail. San Juan Mts are fairly easy trails however, if your not paying attention or have a mechanical failure you die. It's a long way down.

    I started going twice a year, one trip to the San Juan Mts the other to Colorado Springs and Moab.

    Entrance to Black Bear Pass switchbacks



    Around 13k ft on another trail



    Half way down BB, structures come down but the wood stays, no termites in the Mts.


    I led a group of 8-9 on Poughkeepsie Gulch trail


    Up the Mt to glacial lake


















    I got carried away with pic posting, but its such a beautiful place to wheel I just wanted to share.

    Awesome picks Posimoto, makes me wish we had more time to stop out there and rent a Jeep. Mitch i'll keep my eye out for that class, thanks.

    Cool

    Hello and welcome!
    Amazing pictures, so thank you for sharing :)
    Traction, articulation, and gearing make a good off-road rig. Just a big lift, wide mud tires, and a winch simply do not ;)
