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.

Not all of these locations are on the San Juan National Forest.
As of May 13th, 2022 all high country trails should be considered closed for the winter but are being plowed open now. Conditions can change very quickly this time of year. Some passes should be considered closed and travel at your own risk. San Juan County has started to plow some of the lower roads and should start on the passes as time and weather permits.
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.

*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!
