Rising Sun 4 Wheel Drive Club is a non-profit family oriented club dedicated to Toyota Land Cruisers, pickups, 4Runners and their owners. In addition, we also offer associate memberships to non-Toyota owners and enjoy the camaraderie of the occasional Jeep and Suzuki owners. We have members ranging from 14 years old to over sixty who enjoy wheeling everything from forest service roads to hardcore trails.

We currently are hosts to three Colorado trails for the Adopt-A-Trail program, and while most of our wheeling is local, we also host the famous Cruise Moab event every May in Moab and have an annual Outlaw’s Run in the San Rafael Swells in Utah.

We host a birfield packing party and a swap meet every year for those that enjoy building and wrenching on their own rigs, along with a Christmas party where you can hang out, enjoy some food, and tall talk trails. We are a Chapter of the Toyota Land Cruiser Association, and a member of the Blue Ribbon Coalition and United Four Wheel Drive Associations.

Meetings are held at 7:30 pm on the first Wednesday of the month at Stevinson Toyota West in Golden and are open to all. We hope you’ll stop by and introduce yourself sometime.

On August of 1956, Kurland Motors sent out an informational letter to Jeep owners. With the help of the grapevine, a surprising 500 jeepers packed the Kurland Motors showroom. The consensus that night was to form the first four- wheel drive club in the State of Colorado and Mile-Hi Jeep Club was born. Our official registered logo is a red, white, and blue representation of a Jeep climbing 14,264 foot Mt. Evans, with Mt. Elbert in the background.

The purpose of the Mile Hi Jeep Club of Colorado is to:

• Unite adventure-loving people in worthwhile 4-wheel drive activities.
• Educate its members in the proper manner of all road driving
• Protect, and preserve the natural beauty and terrain.
• Participate, on a voluntary basis, in search and rescue and other humanitarian missions, as the community needs.
• Share good fellowship while operating our vehicles in a manner to preserve and protect our land for all generations.
• Extend the courtesy of the open road to all.

Patrols
The Mile-Hi Jeep Club consists of groups called patrols. Each patrol enjoys a different style of wheeling. Some prefer short day trips and some love to RV up in the mountains for the weekend. Some prefer easy to moderate trails, and some like to test the limits of gravity on extreme trails. The Patrols collectively are responsible for 18 Adopt-A-Roads. After you join the club, you need to choose a patrol that suits you. Ask around at a club meeting and see how people describe their own patrol. Some patrols have minimum requirements such as the number of meetings you have to attend before you can join. The Mile-Hi Jeep Club admits all types of four-wheel drives, has over 150 members in 12 patrols, and claims the title of the oldest and largest four-wheel drive club in Colorado. Each patrol meets independently of the Parent Club each month.

Parent Club
The THIRD THURSDAY of each month the Mile-Hi Jeep holds a Parent Club meeting at the Maple Grove Grange at 7:30pm. If you are interested in joining Mile-Hi or just want to meet some of the fun and interesting people, come to one of our meetings and see what we are all about. Our members come from all walks of life and all ages. We have three members that have been with the club for over 50 years! Members enjoy the outdoors, the camaraderie, and fellowship found in 4 Wheeling. We welcome guests at all of our meetings and enjoy talking to everyone over refreshments served after each meeting. For the first few trails, you do not need to be a member. You are encouraged to join if you like the club and would like to continue attending our events. Visitors are always welcome!

The main purpose and goals of our club is to keep 4wd trails and roads open. We work closely with the National Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and Colorado State Parks. We also interface with other OHV clubs, state and county organizations and governments, pooling our resources and work force towards our goals.

We are a member of the Colorado Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Inc. (CoA4WDCI), the United Four Wheel Drive Associations (U FWDA), Blue Ribbon Coalition, and White River Forest Alliance. We fully support and donate funds to the Colorado Off Highway Vehicle Coalition (COHVCO), and Tread Lightly.

We are associated with fund raising efforts for Children’s Hospital. We donate our vehicles and services to the Four Wheeler’s Emergency Assistance Team (F.E.A,T.), which provide transportation for medical personnel and their patients during inclement weather. The center of our activities, as practiced by our members, revolves around responsible and safe four- wheeling year round. We are a group of people from many occupations who enjoy the out doors for what it is. Our goals are to maintain this way of life for future generations. We are content to look, admire, and drive on . . . leaving it for others to enjoy.

Remember, always Tread Lightly! So generations to come may enjoy what we have.

The GO-4x4's is a family oriented club of about twenty members and growing. The club is based in Aurora. We meet at Off Road Ltd., at 1-225 and Colfax Avenue. We have been a member of the Colorado Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, Inc., for over twenty years. We travel a variety of different trails from moderate to more difficult, although we prefer the challenging trails with the right vehicle setup.

We maintain two Adopt-A-Roads near the Bailey and Kenosha Pass areas. Two trips during the summer are held to run the trails, clean them, replace signs and do erosion control with the help of the Ranger station in Morrison.

The club meets on the first Friday of each month for an hour of business. The second Saturday is schedu1ed for the monthly trip. Lately, we have been doing two to three trips a month. We plan trips for the upcoming year at our December meeting. This way you will have time to plan for vacation time for western slope or out-of-state trips.

The GO-4x4's promote friendship and strong safety and environmental practices while four-wheeling. We are a hands-on club strongly involved with other volunteer organizations related to four-wheeling. We also get together to work on each other's vehicles and learn more about the "mechanical side" of four-wheeling.

The Hillbillies 4x4 Club, founded in 1986, is an active diverse group of about 16 units. Our membership includes children and grandchildren, singles and couples of all ages. We provide family orientated activities including moderate to difficult four wheeling with the occasional challenging trail, camping, a Christmas party, and other fun times.

Our club meets the second Tuesday of every month in the Northwest metro area. We welcome all types of 4x4 vehicles. Members schedule a trip and/or social event at least once per month. Annual events include a trip to the Moab, Utah area in the spring and a long weekend High Country Adventure in late summer.

We undertook and built a successful vehicle for the State Association’s annual Raffle Vehicle fund raising event. Many of our members are regular volunteers at the State Association’s booth during the yearly Sport, Boat and Travel Show.

Our member continue to be involved in the Forest Service Adopt-A-Road program and currently have agreements for both the Eldora-Caribou Flats to the Rainbow Lakes area road (County 128J and FDR505), and the Kingston Peak Road (FDR353). We perform general trail maintenance, build fencing, campground facilities, install signage and provide trail use information handouts, i.e. Stay Teh Trail, during meet-n-greet outings. in the past we have built fencing and compground facilities funded by OHV grants.

Our members work hard to promote responsible four wheeling, fun social and recreational opportunities, and lasting friendships.

As a member of the Colorado State Association of 4-wheel Drive Clubs, Big Horn Jeep Club of Denver strives for and practices responsible and safe 4-wheeling techniques through the stay the trail program.

As a group, we go on many road trips where we tackle different types of trails. We also have social gatherings, such as holiday dinners and camping trips. We also maintain our adopt-a-trail Holy Cross near Red Cliff.

The Holy Cross trail was adopted by Big Horn of Denver in the late 1970’s. During the summer season, our group does annual maintenance on the trail in order to keep it accessible to all outdoor enthusiasts. Maintenance usually consists of cleaning the trail of branches, newly fallen rocks, or any other debris that may have landed on the trail. We try our hardest to maintain this trail so that everyone can experience it.

Throughout the year, our group plans on hitting trails all over the state and even venturing down to Farmington, New Mexico and over to Moab. Trails that Big Horn has tackled in the past are Battlement Mesa, Iron Chest, Crystal Mountain, and a little bit of snow busting. We also have had members travel to Southern Colorado hitting trails in Silverton, Ouray, and Telluride.

Our group is open to all types of 4-wheel drives, families, friends, and anybody who enjoys having a great time in the good ol’ outdoors. Our members vary in experience so no need to worry about keeping up. Our members have been offroading anywhere from months to years. While on the trail, members share tips, maneuvers, and techniques that help conquer the trails we go on. We are not only a group that loves to off-road safely, but we are a family that enjoys what nature has provided us.

Our group meets the first Tuesday of every month at Café Del Sol on the corner of 6th and Garrison in Lakewood at 7p.m. Please feel free to join us!
