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: Wood Hollow on May 25, 2015
Trail run by Matt K., Monica and Walt:
"When we were exploring the San Rafael Swell in 2013, we had a blast doing the loop of Fix It Pass and Devil's Racetrack. We knew there were other trails in the immediate area, and 2015 brought us back to check out the rest. It was our last day in Utah for the trip, and we were going to make the most of it."

Member Trail Recommendation
Monica recommends Sidewinder as one of our favorite Colorado trails (Grand County):
Why does Monica recommend it?
"Even though the trail is pretty short it really packs a punch. It's also far enough from Denver to keep the yahoos away, but close enough so it doesn't take all day. This trail is a blast!"
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 2015
The best Trail Damage of 2015 as of July 7th goes to Monica running Fuller Bottom on May 22nd, 2015. The mud was sticky and persistent, trapping her in a messy pit for a couple of hours until she winched herself out and up the steep side. We thought we might have to leave the Jeep there to be reclaimed by the desert, but she escaped with nothing but a hefty carwash bill. Fun stuff!

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 2015 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!
