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

As of June 8th, 2021 many high country roads are closed for the winter but plowing has started in all 4 counties in the area. Conditions can change very quickly this time of year. Many 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.
