You don't want to go anywhere near a lot of those trails near Montrose in an FJ.

Jim
I ran into a guy in Black Canyon of the Gunnsion NP that was telling me that Montrose is the place to go in Colorado for hardcore trails. I was kinda surprised considering the mountains are more like big hills when you get close to Montrose. I need to spend more time out there exploring.

There are some interesting bits here and there and lots of spur trails that aren't on the Summit trail list. Groups are always heading off to Poughkeepsie as well. Admittedly though, the Summit is more about the awesome scenery and the people than the hard-core wheeling . . . which is really the way it should be considering that it is a "family" event.
Not looking to beat the truck up. Just need idea of what to look for. I know Moab is sometihng like 150 miles away. Could one do a day trip to Moab? This will be a family trip and will need to drive it home. Hope to see yall on the trails.

Sure, but according to Google Maps, it's anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 hours drive time from Ouray to Moab; depending on which route you take.

So, if you were going to do that, you'd probably want to leave early in the morning and be OK with getting back late at night in order to actually have a full day of wheelin in Moab (which is what I think you'd want).



See you in Ouray, one way or another

Trust me if you go to Moab you are going to want to stay there more than one day there I took my family there last July to go wheeling and we spent 3 days there and we all wished we had more time to explore

Re: 2010 FJ Summit Safety Inspection

As suggested in another thread where this was discussed, your best bet would be to go to Moab for two or three days just prior to attending the Summit. There are always plenty of forum folk visiting the Moab area before and after the Summit.

For example, if you drive out on Sat and Sun you can visit Moab on Mon, Tues, and Wed morning. On Wed afternoon you head over to Ouray/the Summit for Wed night festivities and trail runs on Thur, Fri and Sat. If you leave early afternoon on Sat you can be home by late Sunday and ready to go back to work for "the Man" on Monday morning. If you take that Monday off of work as well you can stick around the Summit Sat night for the raffle and then you have all day Sun and Mon to get home which is less of a rush. You can pack a lot of good wheeling into the week if done like this.

on the trail difficulty note: We are trying to get more difficult trails on the list this year. We are looking at the more difficult trails in Montrose as well as getting Poughkeepsie on the official trail list. The hardest thing about getting Poughkeepsie on the list is that it is usually the last trail to open up there and hard to schedule.
If it keeps snowning this winter like it has it will be a late start for trails to open this year, good thing they pushed the date back for the summit. I heard there was some hard trails around Montrose but I have yet to do anything there, will have to go check it out soon. As far as going to Moab for a day that would be alot of hiway driving for alittle 4 wheeling better off going before or after the summit like the others have said.

Re: 2010 FJ Summit Safety Inspection

there is also a list of recommended items and upgrades to consider for the event that is quite helpful...it was posted last year if I remember correctly.
