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: Missouri Gulch on January 2, 2016
Trail run by Chad T., John W., Matt K., Paul, Roger and Walt:
"The first trail of the year looked like it would be a snowy one. We aired down on the side of the road at a small pull out. It was pretty cold at that point, but got warmer as the day went on. After airing down, we were soon on our way to start Missouri Gulch."

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 2015 Winner
The best Trail Damage of 2015 went to Frank running Green Ridge on September 12th, 2015. It was a bad year for mud, and the deepest, stickiest hole of mud pulled Frank in and wouldn't let him go until he broke something. His track bar mount paid the price, and he had to leave his Jeep out there until he could find someone with a trailer to help get it home. Your front tires need to point the same way, Frank! We're glad you didn't roll over on the highway.

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!
