Billings Canyon

Description

This trail was originally built by the Grand Mesa Jeep Club and the club has maintained it as an adopt-a-trail ever since. The trail follows a dry wash, climbing over boulders, with the second half of the trail getting harder and body damage likely.

Highlights

"The Gatekeeper” is near the beginning of the trail and gives you an idea of what you’re in for. “The Waterfall” is a large ledge requiring careful line picking and just the right amount of throttle. “Roger’s Wreck” is an optional obstacle where the driver must straddle a large gap. Get too far to either side and the vehicle may end up on its side. The “Table Top” is a challenging section requiring careful tire placement.
