PATROLS OF THE Mile-Hi Jeep Club of Colorado

PATROL 1 - THE HOBO JEEPERS

PATROL LEADER: BILL HALLINAN

The spirit of a "Hobo" and the fun of Jeeping are the ideals of our name. As Hobos ride the rails, we instead drive the trails in that same traveling spirit. We like to run from the scenic Jeeping routes, to the rugged adventure trips. The Hobos of Patrol 1 have mainly modified Jeeps, as lifts and lockers are recommended for most trips. The Hobos also enjoy all the MHJC has to offer, hold our Annual Hobo Run and "Tread Lightly". We get together every month at various members houses around Denver.

PATROL 2 - THE RAT PATROL

PATROL LEADER: JOE MCDONOUGH

Our patrol is dedicated to having a blast doing the Jeep thing. We welcome all those that come along on our trail rides. We like to do all types of trails, from very difficult to moderate. We hold monthly patrol meetings on the 2nd Sunday of each month at patrol member's homes to plan next months trail rides. We do, at a minimum, one trail a month. We make it a point that every vehicle that goes out, comes back. Our patrol is not just limited to Jeeps, if it's ready, let's GO.

PATROL 5 - THE 5X5’S

PATROL LEADER: MIKE BOWDEN

Members include singles, couples and families. We live west of Denver and in the foothills. Patrol 5 is active in All-4-Fun and we support all MHJC functions. We enjoy camping and moderate to serious Jeeping. Trips include some day trips, weekends and week long excursions. Our vehicles are equipped to handle most any kind of Jeeping.

PATROL 6 - THE MUDSLINGERS

PATROL LEADER: PETE SHERIDAN

Patrol 6 is made up of families from all over the Denver Metro and foothills. Our age group ranges from young families to retired. We enjoy difficult to extreme types of wheeling. We have an adopt-a-road in Summit County and like to stay involved with land use issues in our state. We run mostly day trips but have some overnights and night runs each year. We try to have up to three trail runs available each month during the summer. We firmly believe there are many fun things to do in the mountains and half the fun is getting there and back, in one piece.  We believe in teamwork on the trail and leave no one behind, everyone pitches in when a vehicle had difficulties or break.  Don’t go wheeling alone.  Come join us on one of our many trips!

PATROL 7 - THE RAINBOW CHASERS

PATROL 9 - TRAIL DAWGS

PATROL LEADER: JEFF ANDERSON


Our patrol members are current, veteran, and retired members of the Uniformed Services of the United States and First Responder organizations and their families.

Most of us drive lightly to heavily modified vehicles and enjoy easy to difficult runs, especially scenic trails above tree line. Most of our runs are day trips on the weekends and include our kids and dogs. We also enjoy night runs, weekend trips, and camping together. We try to schedule two or three trail runs a month during the summer and one or two runs a month during the winter.

As responsible off-road enthusiasts, we Stay the Trail® and Tread Lightly® at all times. We carry out trash on the trail and in camp and encourage others to do the same. Safety is the primary factor in everything we do on the trail, on the road, or in camp. We practice courtesy toward other trail users at all times and guide and assist each other to insure that no one is left behind.

We support the club's annual All-4-Fun, Christmas Caravan for Kids, and land use advocacy. We participate in trail maintenance projects, reforestation projects, and the Four Wheel Emergency Assistance Team (FEAT). We're accepting new members and invite everyone to join us on one of our many runs!
