RATED 4.0- 5.0
These trails are absolutely amazing and can give you a huge adrenaline rush!  While your out rock climbing you'll be going over not just rocks but huge boulders in areas. You'll get to get a front row seat to  Colorado's beautiful outdoors. Some of the trails seem to be extreme from start to finish. You'll also find some trails in the 4-5 rated areas that look fairly easy to get through. The reason for these trails are due to areas of the trail that don't have go around sections.  Certain areas have obstacles that without the proper setup & equipment it is impossible to get through. Stock jeeps are not suggested to attempt these areas. You will not have enough clearance for areas of these trails.  These trails you'll need to make sure you have plenty of ground clearance, tires are suggested to be 37'' or bigger. Some trails will post the minimum requirements to make it through.  Both lockers are apart of the requirements. Suggestions on these trails include strong winches, common used parts & tools to be taken with you, excellent driving skills & experience.  You're best to go in groups that can guide each other through areas of difficulty.  Without proper equipped vehicles these trails often fight back with areas that could cause vehicle damage, break down, rollover ect. Maybe your rig is not set up for these type of trails & that is totally fine. But if you find a date that groups are going out to these trails even as a spectator you'll be amazed watching the pros hit the trails.
