Anyone in Colorado Springs Area? Where is everybody from (general area unless you are

Curious to see if anyone is nearby, I'm new to wheeling and am always looking for new trails and people to trail with. Also, it's always nice to have someone to complain about the weather to who will understand lol.

Denver area here. I am a part of a Jeep Club out of the Springs. We're heading to China Wall tomorrow for a day run.

How do our jeeps do at China Wall? I have been itching to give it a try, but I am nervous about attempting without sliders...

Also, I have no idea how I missed this post! I didn't get a notification for it!

I just figured out that even though I created this thread, I still had to subscribe to it

You can do it without sliders, we had another KL that did, he just tip toed around some of the bigger rocks. I have slidders and years of offroding so I took many of the same lines the Wrangers did. Take a ground guide as there are a few obstacles that you will want an extra set of eyes to avoid damage. Don't be afraid to use 4 low and the rear lockers.

We used this as a warm up for Moab. Heading there this next week and I plan on getting through some of the trails others have backed off.

I am extremely new to offroading... last year was my first. I have a buddy who has a Tacoma TRD offroad who goes with me occasionally, but it might be fun to tag along with someone who knows what they are doing... let me know if you ever come back to China Wall and I would love to meet up!

OK, we have Jeep Club out of CO Springs. Will likely hit many trails this summer after the Moab cool down.
