Welcome to the Creeper Jeepers Gang website. The Creeper Jeepers Gang is a family oriented four-wheel-drive club with members in  Durango CO, Pagosa Springs CO, Farmington NM, and throughout the US.  We do all types of trails, ranging from easy trails passable with any stock 4×4 to extreme rock crawling. Creeper Jeepers is open to all makes and models of vehicles from bone stock to highly modified trail rigs. There’s something on our calendar for just about everyone! To get a little more information about us, like membership and vehicle requirements, go take a look at the About Us section.  You can also email us to learn about the club or upcoming trips in real-time.

As of June 1st, 2020 most high country passes are now closed for the winter but are opening up fast.  Conditions can change very quickly this time of year.  Snow that fell on the peaks have left the high passes snow covered and icy on north facing slopes.  All passes should be considered closed and travel at your own risk.

Roads will be listed as “Closed” if they are officially closed or the are reliably reported to be impassable.  Closed roads are closed to wheeled vehicles.  Forest Roads, BLM Roads and unmaintained County Roads are open to snow machines, foot and ski traffic.

Conditions can change rapidly, be careful of the weather.  

Check with the Silverton Chamber/Visitor’s Center for more up to date info. The number for the Silverton Chamber is (970) 387-5654.  The Concoco in Silverton & Coffee Bear also have up to date information.

*Be aware that passes can vary with weather any time of year. Some may be slick in areas, washed out or snow covered, even if they are listed as OPEN.  Please don’t go beyond where you are comfortable driving. Be safe out there!
