Welcome!

 

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.

Information on joining the club can be found HERE

Club meetings are on the 1st Tuesday of the month, 7:00 P.M. at the La Plata County Fair Grounds Extension building for most months.  Check calendar for any updates.  All are welcome to attend.

Board Meetings are the 3rd Wednesday of the month, 6:30 P.M. location will be provided via email to current club members.  All members are welcome to attend.

We try to have at least one fun run a month.  See the calendar below for dates and information on them.

The Creeper Jeepers have a strict no alcohol on the trail policy, we ask that alcohol not be brought or consumed on the trail, and illicit drugs are not permitted at any Creeper event, trail run or camp out at any time.

Not all of these locations are on the San Juan National Forest.

As of June 20th, 2024 many high passes and roads are closed for the winter but are starting to open.  San Juan, Hinsdale, and Ouray Counties have started plowing some roads.  Conditions can change very quickly this time of year. Some passes should be considered closed and travel at your own risk.  

Roads will be listed as “Closed” if they are officially closed or they 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 Triangle gas station in Silverton has 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!
