Denver Jeep Run

I just got a Commander recently and was curious if anyone around Denver would like to get out and run some trails. Right now the Commnder is stock but still would like to see some beginner runs with some folks around here. I've never owned a 4x4 before and would like to get into offraoding but don't know anyone to get out with around here.

I live in Castle Rock by the way.

Otherwise if anyone knows can you recommend some sites to search for trails or know of anything around the Denver area.

Thanks guys.

Where in CR are you? I'm down by Red Hawk. There are some decent trails and different ways to get to Rampart Range Road from Hwy. 105, Perry Park Road, that are good as starter trails if you're new to 4-wheeling.

I live in Aurora, originally from the Springs. Have you tried Schubarth Road up on Rampart Rage Road?

You live by Red Hawk huh? I live in the new townhomes they put up behind Target about 2 years ago... I've probably seen you driving around.

I got onto Rampart yesterday from the Springs side as it is closed off 67. Where is Perry Park and Schubarth?

When you get on Rampart(paved) keep going until u see Loy Creek road get on it and when you get to a 4 way keep going straight, you'll see some houses and signs that kinda scare people off because the say "private property," it just means the LAND is, NOT the road. The road starts easy as you go thru USAF Academy land but turns moderate(easy) because it becomes narrow. There is one spot that a Hummer(or other full size) can't make, it's large boulders that you have to squeeze thru, I made it, barely..LOL. There is also one spot that you have to drive up a boulder that leds to an awsome camp spot which is Basically ON a boulder. Just explore and have FUN!...

I was looking at going up the rampart at some point and is it safe to venture on the side roads such as schuebarth in the winter? I know the the rampart road is fine but is there too much snow on the 300's side roads this time of year?
