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: Middle St. Vrain on July 5, 2014
Trail run by Austin, Bob S., Frank, Gary, Monica and Roger:
"The group always looks forward to our annual 4th of July BBQ in the mountains. There is still quite a bit of snow in the high country when July rolls around every year, so we find one of the few trails that is open and we head out. We've had our BBQ at the Coney Flats lake before and it was a big hit, so we were doing it again. We got an early start and found each other at the trailhead before airing down and heading in."

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."
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 2013 Winner
The best Trail Damage of 2013 goes to Roger running Mount Rosa on June 29th, 2013. At least that's when Roger found out that his rear upper control arm mount had broken off of his Jeep's frame, taking the rear track bar with it. It's tough to drive without a rear track bar, but a few ratchet straps got him home. Maybe we should call the trail Upper Control Arm Mount Rosa?

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 2014 wall calendar is available for purchase! It's also time to add the full 2013 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!
