Anyone have any suggestions for a place for some fire roads? I need to do a test run with the baby before we head out to CO. Given this is mostly a scenic trip out there (only airing down below 20 one day) I figured a fire road is mostly what I need to make sure the baby is good with.

Just the tar hollow stuff. No true fire roads around here.

That's what I figured. Given my extreme distaste for mud I doubt I will go down there.

Might try the public access roads up north of Delaware state park. They are gravel roads, with plenty of pot holes and such to test the suspension and how the baby would take it. Just take 23 N up toward Delaware. Turn right onto State route 229. There's a lane called Wildlife rd that goes back a ways. There's also a few off of Horseshoe road. That would be the closest place i could think of for light duty testing.

any open parking lot with parking barriers will work also. just zig zag over them and an occasional curb. Where in colorado are you going? the alt can be a bigger factor than the road surface. One of mine fell asleep on engineer pass. and remember that it can be a lot colder at higher elivations
