Finally scratched that off-roading itch!

Went with a bunch of fellow wheelers to do a few trails today. These are in Pike National Forest in Colorado:
  • Illinois Gultch
  • Long Hollow Road
  • Missouri Gultch
  • Fern Creek

All in all, the Touareg did extremely well. There was only one place that I didn't try -- Moab Hill in Illinois Gultch. You have to have a serious lift and some serious tires to do that hill, so I passed on that, but was able to tackle everything else. Had an absolutely great time!

Here are a few Touareg highlights:











Here are some pics of Moab Hill -- I didn't even want to attempt this! Some of my fellow wheelers were much better equipped than I to tackle this hill!

looks awesome, sorry i didnt make it down. I appreciate the invite, but getting down to colorado springs by 6 am was not for me. It takes 2 hours to get there. Lets do it again some time.

Nicely done...one of my favorite parts of offroading is the spectacular scenery that many people will never get to see!

We didn't actually meet up at the beginning of the first trail until 8 a.m., but yeah, I understand. That's still kind of early for a 2 hour drive.
