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: Eagle Rock on June 11, 2016
Trail run by Matt K., Roger and Walt:
"We met up at Home Depot in Colorado Springs and aired down in the parking lot. The Home Depot had a lot of Jeeps in the parking lot, and we imagined that all of them had the same plan of running Eagle Rock. So, we got in line and we started the long drive down Old Stage Road."

Member Trail Recommendation
Derek recommends Georgetown Ice Races as one of our favorite Colorado trails (Clear Creek County):
Why does Derek recommend it?
"I don't really have a favorite trail, but I will try any 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 June 29th 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!
