Replete with stunning mountain scenery, well-kept trails, and exhilarating obstacles, the Colorado Rockies are undeniably one of the best off-roading locations in the country. If you’re planning a trip to Colorado in the future, first of all, we’re super jealous. Second of all, good luck. With a virtually endless amount of incredible trails to choose from and only so much time, it can be hard to determine which ones you should tackle on your trip. If you need help narrowing your options down and planning the off-roading trip of a lifetime, we’ve got you covered. Here are three of Colorado’s best off-road Jeep trails.
Colorado State Forest Park
Colorado State Forest Park provides 71,000 acres of breathtaking protected wilderness and over 50 miles of off-highway vehicle trails for off-roaders to explore. With so much stunning land to see, off-roading is a great way to cover more ground and experience some of the areas that are hard to reach on foot.
In addition to its stunning scenery, Colorado State Park is also known for the abundance of wildlife that traverses its grounds—especially moose. Each year hundreds of moose are spotted throughout the park, so make sure to keep an eye out for these majestic animals while riding.
Wagon Wheel Trail System
While it may be located in the small town of Meeker, Colorado, the Wagon Wheel Trail System is a big off-roading destination. This impressive system of over 250 trails and 16 interconnecting loops runs through the White River National Forest and is the ultimate off-roading playground for beginners and experts alike.
Across the expansive system, you’ll find largely unpaved old settler trails with intriguing abandoned villages strewn along the way. If you’re looking to spend a few days in the area, you can also take advantage of the many campsites and hiking trails along the system as well.
Grand Mesa National Forest
Another one of Colorado’s best off-road Jeep trails is Grand Mesa National Forest. The park is full of adventurous rugged terrain, dense forests, and 300 beautiful lakes.
Over 150 miles of off-roading trails span the park upon which drivers can traverse deep mud holes, grassy hills, and rocky inclines. If you’re newer to the sport of off-roading, this beautiful land also has several moderate trails located atop flat-top mountains, which provide spectacular views for you to behold.
Before hitting the off-road, you’ll need to get that pesky hardtop off your Jeep. After all, an off-roading adventure just isn’t as enjoyable with the top on. To make the process of taking off and storing your hardtop a breeze (like the one you’ll feel on your trip), enlist the aid of a Top Lift Pro hardtop removal system. Our Jeep hardtop storage hoists allow you to remove your Jeep’s hardtop in two minutes or less without any help or hassle. For more information regarding our innovative products, contact us today!
