When you buy your very first Jeep Wrangler, or you get your Jeep up and running for the first time in a while, the first thing most Jeep owners want to do is take it off roading. No matter where you live, there is bound to be one or two great Jeep trails for you to hit. But in today’s blog from our team at TopLift Pros, we wanted to talk about some of the best states that you can take your baby off-roading in. Whether you already live in these locations or are looking to take an off-roading road trip, these are some of the states you should stop at in your adventures (in no particular order).
California is one of the greatest states for outdoor activities. It has mountains, valleys, ocean, forests, farmland, deserts, and more. This extensive variety of climate makes it an exciting and interesting place to go off-roading. It’s your one-stop shop for nearly any type of trail you are looking for. Looking for a technical mountain trail? California has it. Looking for a trail that goes through a beautiful forest? California has it. Starting to see a pattern?
Colorado is perhaps one of the most beautiful states in the country — depending on who you ask. If you ask us, though, then we’d say its beauty is unparalleled and completely unique and exciting. More and more people are learning about the once-secret gem that is Colorado and its population has steadily been growing for years now. That’s because there are tons of excellent off-road mountain trails with breathtaking views. Whether you are brand new to offroading in your Jeep or are a hardened off-road veteran, Colorado has a variety of extremely challenging terrain and great novice trails alike.
Colorado has weather that can change in an instant. When you have a hardtop Jeep, it can be a royal pain taking on and off your cover all by yourself to try and keep up with the weather. That’s why at Top Lift Pro, we developed an easy-to-use Jeep hoist that one person can operate. Learn more about it here.
When people think of Arizona, they might just think of a dry, flat desert. In reality, Arizona has so much more to offer than that. After all, it is the home of the Grand Canyon! There are amazing trails that can be found all over the state, taking you through a variety of environments and challenges — many of which have beautiful waterfalls, painting-like scenery of flowering cactus, and interesting canyons to explore.
Arizona is known for its intense heat. Going topless can be a breath of fresh air and enhance your experience. Shop Wrangler Jeep hoists from Top Lift Pro to make going topless a painless and quick process.
Utah is another state with pretty dramatic diversity across the state. Utah has the Rocky Mountains, stunning Great Basin valleys, and sand dunes that will leave you smiling. There are trails where you can relax and experience natural geysers and beautiful landscapes, or there are trails with tons of challenges where you will be bouncing while navigating rocky terrain. Whatever your off-roading cup of tea is, Utah is diverse enough that you are bound to find an amazing trail that you’ll love.
The magic of Alaska is that much of it is largely left untouched by man. This makes it so there is endless amazing terrain to explore. Some of the more popular trails are on and around the Knik Glacier. These trails have everything you could want in your off-roading trails like:
Iconic Alaskan scenery
Snow off-roading trails
Water/river off-roading trails
Heavy forest trails
Historic sites like mines and lakes
And much more! That’s why Alaska for us at Top Lift Pro definitely makes the top five list.
Whether you agree or disagree with our list of the top five states for off-roading, the important thing is that you get out there and use your Wrangler to its full potential.
