Re: Top 10 Most Difficult Colorado Trails For an FJC
We ran it this past summer with an old friend of mine who has moved out to the area. It was a little interesting because he wasn't used to spotting a cruiser through there (and his JK is built up massively so it was mostly point and shoot for him) and my MTZs are close to end of life so they weren't doing me any favors. We were also loaded for a 5 week trip, so we had to be pushing 7k lbs. We pulled line more than I wanted, 1x due to driver error, 2x due to spotter (I should have checked the line myself), and 1x due to sand on top of rocks sliding me into a really bad spot. 3 of those could have been avoided if we took a little more time. The last one...maybe if I brought a broom or had newer tires? I'd do it again though - great trail, great time, and we didn't take any damage. It's just really far away to drive there, hammer on a vehicle for 2-3 days, then have that vehicle be responsible for getting you home.
