    Hi everyone.

    My name is Rob and I recently purchased a 2012 4runner trail edition.

    I moved to co springs this summer from MN with my wife (The hippie), 2 cats and 1 dog.

    I'm a computer engineer by trade and avid shade tree mechanic / DIYer.

    We moved here for the outdoors and craft beer. We did the balance rock trail in the 4runner today. Made it all the way to the reservoir, seemed pretty easy in our stock offroader. Trail ending looked familiar as we'd hiked the Palmer Lake trail the weekend before.

    Looking forward to wheeling with others, seems safer than with only 1 truck.

    Rob

    You touch upon one significant benefit of a group - having help (or giving assistance) should it be needed.

    Nice, another Springs addition!

    Welcome to the group!

    You should definitely do a Gulch run with us next time (soon), they stay open pretty much all winter.

    From the Springs, those are my goto trails during the off-season.

    How soon is soon? We're looking for a trail for this weekend, and have never heard of the gulches.

    Welcome aboard!!! I might have to join you guys this week-end (see how the work week goes??), a little caution Hacket might be a little much for stock height down towards the end after the drop off (bypass), but you can always make that call at the time. Jealous of your toy!

    I agree, it gets very washed out soon after that. Right before there though is a great turn around spot.

    I'm thinking that will be the cut-off point for Hackett.
