These pages feature trails run by the members of TrailDamage.com (why that name?), a club based in Colorado. Here you can find information about trails in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, California, Texas and Wyoming. Each trail page contains a description of the trail, as well as trail features like rock climbing, water crossings and mud. Pictures, maps, and Google Earth information (what is Google Earth?) are featured here, with many more pictures and movies within each Trail Report.
Latest Trail Report: Rollins Pass West on August 27, 2016
Trail run by David M., Holly, Julie, Matt K., Monica and Roger:
"The summer was ending with a bang, and other parts of Colorado were seeing their first snow of this winter. We were lucky and it didn't snow where we were, but it was very cold and windy at the end of the trail. The skies were sunny, though, and we all wore every jacket we brought with us so we had a great time."

Member Trail Recommendation
Ladd recommends Broken Arrow as one of our favorite Arizona trails (Coconino County):
Why does Ladd recommend it?
"Like Moab, but with more trees. Very busy trail, lots of tours, but still fun to do."
Help Us Replace Our Aging Camera
We have a GoFundMe campaign going to buy TrailDamage.com a new camera. Can you help? Our current camera is full of Utah sand and Colorado dirt, and it's failing. After four years and 40,000 pictures, can you blame it? Also, if you donate $50 you'll become a new member. This is the first time we've offered something like this, and we're hoping to meet a few new members this way. Thanks for your help!
The only way to join the club is to be invited by a current club member. We have quite a few members! We're not the usual kind of 4x4 club -- there is a small fee for the year only if you go wheeling, and there are no required meetings. We're just a group of friends who get together as often as possible to run trails in the area.
Trail Damage 2016
The best Trail Damage of 2016 as of September 28th goes to Matt running Big Water Canyon on May 14th, 2016. He couldn't have been much farther from civilization when he stopped, opened his hood, and pulled out a belt. His Jeep didn't want to run at that point, so Frank towed him out. It took about seven hours, but he made it back to civilization.

TrailDamage.com and Google
We like what Google does with mapping and satellite imagery, so we use Google Maps and Google Earth to provide even more information about the locations of trails and obstacles. Google Maps make searching for trails easier in Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, California and Texas. If you really want to see it before you get there, use the Google Earth Placemarks and Tracks found on the trail pages of this site to check out the terrain first.
The 2016 wall calendar is available for purchase! It's also time to add the full 2014 three-DVD set to your collection. You can also get whole seasons of full-sized images and movies from other years on DVD, as well as cool stuff featuring the TrailDamage.com logo. Check it out!
