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: Oh-My-God Road on July 16, 2016
Trail run by Bryan, Holly, Jeffrey, Matt K., Monica and Roger:
"The forest service opened Kingston Peak the day before, and that was our ultimate goal. We decided to check out Yankee Hill, too, following reports of it getting more difficult. It was a day of many miles, and we planned on seeing many people. The weather was perfect, and we aired down at the McDonald's in Idaho Springs."

Member Trail Recommendation
Walt recommends Elephant Hill as one of our favorite Utah trails (San Juan County):
Why does Walt recommend it?
"The start and end of this trail is so cool. It's fun backing down and up the switchbacks! You are encouraged to run one switchback in reverse on the way in and out of the trail."
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 July 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!
