Brunnie Stock vehicles can easily do Green and many Blue, and even some Red trails in the Funtreks Books. We took a stock vehicle over Tomichi Pass before it was closed and never had a problem.

I'll try to be better at keeping an eye on it. Sounds like its leaning towards late july/ early august. I hope to get out on my own before then and can maybe give an update on the status of some trails.

Since I, and im assuming most of us are in the denver metro/ front range area I think it'd be best to keep it within a few hours of the front range.

Why dont we start trying to narrow down some trails and then we can plan dates from there?

So far we've got suggestions for:

Alpine pass / engineer pass (pretty far out west)

red cone

Montezuma


Feel free to chime in with some trail suggestions that might be a good fit!
Tincup, Cumberland, Old Monarch Passes.

Mosquito and Weston Passes.
All of these are good options for stock rigs as well.

meanGREENnugget It looks like some of those interested are stock. With that said I think we should base the trail selection off of stock capability. Red cone is definitely a bit much for a stock rig. I would think most stock rigs would be okay with the Yankee Hill network of trails. There are a few rocky parts but for the most part it’s pretty mellow. I will try and check it out this week and see how it looks, trails out here tend to change from year to year.

Alpine pass / engineer pass -Epic, but pretty far out west

red cone- I like the location and it looks like it would be fun

Im also not far from stock really, so I try to keep it fun but relatively easy, no one likes breaking stuff! well, I dont at least lol.

I wouldnt mind getting it a little dirty with some mud, its usually so dry here its just dust.
