    Default Caribou Trail



    Ran Caribou on 8/26/17. 2 stock 3rd gen 4Runners (one with a locker, one without). 3-5 rating is pretty accurate due to inclines getting muddy and the very narrow section in Eldora. A couple spots offered some nice 3 wheel action and 1 - 1.5 feet water. Scenery is gorgeous! There was some disagreement as to which end to start at as we ran in to 1 vehicle starting from Eldora (he had to reverse dow to let 5 down). The narrow section down into Eldora has NOWHERE to turn around or back up if you are going down hill. It would be nice to have a sign to tell people where to start. We ran from Nederland to Eldora and it was awesome until the traffic jam. Camping: there are designated, dispersed camping spots (beautiful ones).

    Its best to start in Eldora, as up hill technically has right of way.

    I always do my best to give up hill the right of way. However, being my first time on Caribou I searched and everything I found said to run it from Ned to Eldora. Would be nice to have something saying "start here". But I know people will do what they want and not always do what is easiest.
    It was too dangerous to back up or try and give up hill the right of way.
    Other than that it was a blast. I'll make sure to run it from Eldora from now on and let others know the same.
