Default multi day Colorado trip

Hello everyone-

Now that my daughter is almost a year old, the wife and I are thinking of taking a 4x4 trip through Colorado. I'm familiar with most of the state from a dirtbike (singletrack) stand point but not from a 4x4 view. The plan is to mix camping with hotels. We'll be heading out in July and then again in Sept so I don't think snow will be much of an issue. Each trip will be approximately 13 days long. Does anybody have any GPS Tracks or suggestions for a route.

We'll be leaving out of Pine Junction and heading North for the first trip and South for the second, or vice versa. We've got a lifted and locked FJ80 but I'm hoping to have the '64 FJ40 ready to roll by Sept. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My e-mail address is baja1d@msn.com

Thanks in advance,
~Travis

We're also considering heading out to Utah during the winter months when it cools down a little. Any multi day routes through Utah's desert would also be appreciated. Bye the way, if anybody needs singletrack dirtbike GPS tracks I'd gladly trade info.

You might consider purchasing the Charles Wells books on Colo and/or Utah, as they provide great information on trails and difficulties and are better than most other books out there. Type 'Charles Wells' in Amazon's search window and specify 'books'.

I second this, I think the guides are under the name FunTreks
