Colorado Wheeling - Die Trying

Posted in Events on May 1, 2009

As magazine guys, we hear it all the time, Twirling Lilies or Devil's Tap Shoes or is the hardest trail in the country. Telling us that is a sure-fire way to get us interested enough to check it out. We like carnage, like pushing the envelope, and just flat-out enjoy a good day wheeling. The problem is we often find that "Mashed Potato" often isn't the hardest trail we've ever been down.

We had heard that Die Trying in Montrose, Colorado was the hardest trail around. We were told that this trail ate Dana 44s for breakfast, and that a rig with 35-inch tires wouldn't make it. We'd heard it all before, and while any day wheeling is better than a day at work (oh, wait) when we left Die Trying, it was definitely in the top 5 toughest trails we'd tackled. Not only does Die Trying live up to the hype, we'd definitely drive out there to run it again and if you are a serious rock crawler, you should add it to your bucket list too.
