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.

Member Trail Recommendation
Frank recommends Chinaman Gulch as one of our favorite Colorado trails (Chaffee County):
Why does Frank recommend it?
"Always changes each year. Has easy lines and hard lines. Open most of year."
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 2014 Winner
The best Trail Damage of 2014 went to Bob S. running Coney Flats on July 5th, 2014. Bob had an altercation with a gate back in the day that left his front fender pretty mangled, and the argument he had with a tree next to the trail didn't help matters. It's cosmetic, and a little bit of wrestling bent things out of the way so he could enjoy the rest of the day. Whoops!
We don't have any 2015 contenders yet. See winners from previous years
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!
