Trails

I have ridden numerous trails in the southwest U.S., mostly with our 4WD Club, the New Mexico 4-WheelersSo far, we've traveled to parts of Colorado and Utah, and of course, all throughout of wonderful state of New Mexico.  I've "tracked" all of our trail adventures with my Garmin GPS.  The trails are under the links below, by state.  I've included a difficulty rating and the general location of each trail.  Within each trail page, I've included a full-size color map suitable for printing (created using DeLorme's Topo USA software), and a table with the GPS (latitude/longitude) coordinates for each of the waypoints.  Below is the system I use to rate the difficulty of each trail:

Difficulty Rating Description:
bulletOne (1)
bulletEasy; very scenic and lots of fun; most do not require continual use of 4WD; perfect for stock vehicles.
bulletTwo (2)
bulletModerate; a variety of challenges; excellent for mildly-modified vehicles (e.g., 1" - 2" lift and 30" - 31" tires).
bulletThree (3)
bulletHard; the likelihood of getting stuck is considerably high; best suited for moderately-modified vehicles (e.g., 3"-plus lift, 33"-plus tires, one locking differential (and/or above average driving skill)).
bulletFour (4)
bulletExtreme; the likelihood of vehicle damage is considerably high; reserved only for highly-modified vehicles (e.g., 4"-plus lift, 35"-plus tires, two locking differentials, lots spare parts) and very experienced drivers.
bulletFive (5)
bulletStupid; damage to your vehicle is virtually guaranteed; reserved only for purpose-built vehicles with ridiculously large tires and mentally unstable drivers (i.e., these people are nuts!).  If you are "into" these kinds of trails, I recommend you wear a helmet . . . and you probably should make sure your health and life insure premiums are up to date!
