We need to keep it close to Red Rocks. Looking at several, Kingston Peak Trail is the toughest, rated 5. We'll be a single jeep jkur 2" lift on 34" and no winch. We're just looking to have a nice scenic day out in the high country without issues. I'd be open to any suggestions on trails or any other sage advice for a beginner. I'd like to do some more challenging trail sometime but I think I'll wait for a JOCCI trip for that.

If you are saying you are a beginner, I would not recommend a 5 to do solo. We do Middle St Vrain/Coney Flats every year and it is a 5/6, and I would prefer to Not run it solo. You just never know what can go wrong, quickly. Especially with no winch.

A jkur on 34" is quite capable of running a 5/6 or higher without problems, but I don't know your skillset enough to recommend that you try it solo. I also don't know Kingston Peak, it is on my list of trails to run.

I would recommend Pickle Gulch (rated 4)
Do you have either the North or South I70 Funtreks trail books? Or traildamage subscription? I can look thru at a few other trails for you

I'm all ears Paul, Kingston is out and I do see Pickle Gulch in my book, Colorado Trails front range region. I'll bring my book to the meeting Tuesday and maybe we can talk a little.  Thanks for the advice, didn't mean to hijack your trip report.

No worries :) I have a couple of books and all the traildamage trails saved on my phone, so we could discuss any other trail tuesday
