Just wait to see the Montrose trails we're looking at adding. They will DEFINITELY not be stock capable. We'll make sure the "there's no hard trails in the area" statements will stop after this year.
I believe you. I ran into a guy last year on the way home that stated the most hardcore trails around are in the Montrose area . . . and he was including Moab in the comparison. I've seen pictures since then and believe what he said.

Re: Black Bear - The Steps Video

Yeah, beautiful scenery but I have a serious fear of heights. Just watching from the heights perspective makes my heart skip a beat.

Re: Black Bear - The Steps Video

I am afraid of heights too, but Black Bear is a very doable trail with your fears. You are never close to the edge. Like I told a friend last year, you would have to jump the curb run down two parking meters and hit a building at home. Do you or have you ever done that? I doubt it. Black bear is no more dangerous than driving down the local freeway. It is wide and plenty of room in the turns, never getting with in 4-5 foot of the edge. Relax and overcome your fears, you will be glad you did.

We were with a group of folks (sponsors) who tried it without a single 3-point turn... THOSE guys were getting close to the edge. So if you make that a goal, you can make it as scary as you want!

Re: Black Bear - The Steps Video

I was one of those last year. Did it with no backups at all. Sure you get close doing that, but that is not required nor recommended. The idea is to have fun and it is a trail that you will remember no matter how you do it. Just don't let someone else decide if you can or can't. Your vehicle is more than capable of the trail. If you are considering it, your talents are most likely up to it. I led it last year with 7 beginners, a couple from Kansas, with sticks, who had never been out of Kansas. Agreed it is not the scenic Flint Hills!!!! All made it safely and enjoyed their trips. Some of the wives were concerned at the beginning, but just take your time and have fun. The Summit will not put you out on the trail with someone that is not capable of helping you through it. Be safe.
