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: Georgetown Ice Races on March 1, 2013
Trail run by Karen, Matt K. and Monica:
"The first Fun Day for the Georgetown Ice Races was cancelled due to lack of ice, so we were really ready for the second and last Fun Day for the season. We headed up to the lake, and the weather looked nasty over the lake even though the drive up was sunny and warm. The morning brought a blizzard to the ice, but it cleared up as the afternoon progressed."

Featured Member of the Month: Terry
Terry has been a member of TrailDamage.com since June 28, 2008 when he ran Eagle Rock with us. He drives a blue 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon (TJ). Since he joined the group, Terry ran 4 different trails in 2008, 4 different trails in 2009, 12 different trails in 2010, 16 different trails in 2011, and 1 trail in 2012 for a total of 33 different trails. The last trail he ran was Spring Creek on June 24, 2012. See Terry's TrailDamage.com member page for more pictures and information, including vehicle modifications and future plans.
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 2012 Winner
The best Trail Damage of 2012 goes to Ben running Copper Ridge on October 21st, 2012. For his first time in Moab with his new Jeep, he managed to get in a morning fender bender with Walt in the hotel parking lot, and then he ripped his rear fender flare and wheel well off on a twisty hill of rocks before lunch. Add lots of scrapes to his new skid plates from the days before and the trip was a success!

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 2013 wall calendar is available for purchase! It's also time to add the massive 2012 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!
