Colorado Springs Christian 4 Wheelers, Inc exists as a club to allow for wonderful times together in off-road activities with fellow believers. The association began in the spring of 1993 with the belief that we are to invite our neighbors and co-workers to join with us in any of our events so that we are involved in reaching out to other members of our community.
As Christians, we desire to always uphold the law in regards to such things as: obeying the speed limit, staying clear of no trespassing or posted areas, staying on the trail when so marked, packing it in and packing it all out, adhering to the national Tread Lightly program and state organization of 4WD clubs. Our desire is to help each other and our fellow man at all times. We want to be model off-roaders. God has created a mighty work of art in the Rocky Mountains. Every Christian needs to be balanced in life with their spiritual self, family, work, and recreational activities.
Micah 4:2 states, "Come, let us go up to the mountains." We all need times of refreshing: the mountains, streams, and wooded hills to remind us of the promises of God and of how faithfully He provides. Let's go up -- see it, hear it, breathe it in, experience it, and most of all feel it. Who knows? It may help change you forever!
The Labor Day Weekend trip is going to be a great one. Please come join us for some great wheeling, camping and amazing views of Colorado. Please note this is a 2 NIGHT CAMPING TRIP at 2 separate locations. Currently, the scheduled trip leader is Kirk Bode
Friday afternoon Sept. 4th we'll meet at the Safeway parking lot on 31st and Colorado Ave. We are scheduled to leave at 2pm. PLEASE BE ON TIME as we have a long drive to Taylor Park to set up camp, eat, etc. If you are coming and know you will be late, please let Kirk know.
We will head west to Buena Vista, then over Cottonwood Pass and down into Taylor Park. We plan to camp at the Dorchester Campground on the Northern portion of Taylor Park. For those that may be joining us at the campsite, here are directions: It's approximately 12 miles north of the intersection of Cottonwood Pass road and road 742 (T intersection on the East side of the lake)
We will try to get an early start as there is a lot to see. Head west up Italian Creek. (Depending on time we may try a short side trip up to American Flag Mountain. INCREDIBLE VIEWS of Taylor Park area.) Then continue West and into Crested Butte. From there, North over Schofield Pass and down into Devil's Punchbowl. Amazing ledge trail with huge waterfall. We plan to camp along the Eastern portion of Lead King Basin trail for the night.
Leave camp to see historic Crystal Mill, then back up Devil's Punchbowl and to Crested Butte. Depending on what people would like to do, we may go over Pearl Pass on the way back East. Gorgeous trail! The trails on this trip are rated moderate to difficult although anyone with a capable vehicle will be fine. No extreme obstacles, but plenty of challenges. Devil's Punchbowl is quite narrow. Hope to see you there!
