NEW EDIT: Sorry nevermind, found the answer to my question on the Summit web page

Ok, I'll try to be the first actual question here...

Is there a good resource us Summit newbs can check out that lists the trails that will be run, difficulty of the trail, scenic rating, etc.? Possibly with pictures?

I thought I had seen something somewhere, but I cannot find it now. I could probably just look up the general area on some web site, but I wouldn't know for sure if any given trail is within Summit scope or not (and they probably don't have a FJ specific trail rating).

Thanks, and I look forward to meeting everyone!!!

Jeff and all

4WD Trails Southwest Colorado by Peter Massey and Jeanne Wilson is a great book. It has a break down of all the roads and trails in the area. It's a great book to read before you go. It'll give you a great starting point as to what you want to run.

Yeah, Kat . . . . for your sake (and safety), I probably shoud've worded that a bit differently.

Re: Official 'Help the New Summiteer' Thread!

I only have moderate offroad experience and have only been to the western part of this great country a couple times. I'm not to concerned about trail difficulty as most have said that most of the trails are not that tuff. So what I want to know is what are some of the more scenic and fun trails to run?

There is NO shortage of scenic and interesting trails around Ouray.

Here's a good place to get an idea:

Re: Official 'Help the New Summiteer' Thread!

You are going to see something different on all the trails. Some have ghost towns, abandoned mines, snow, etc.
