The purpose of the Mile Hi Jeep Club of Colorado is to unite adventure loving people in worthwhile 4-wheel drive activities; to educate its members in the proper manner of all road driving; to protect and preserve the natural beauty and terrain; to participate, on a voluntary basis, in search and rescue and other humanitarian missions as the community needs; to share good fellowship while operating our vehicles in a manner so as to preserve and protect our land for all generations; and to extend the courtesy of the open road to all.
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.
Colorado has a lot of history in our mountains. Many of our trips each year offer chances to see, learn and experience what the miners lives were like. You will also have chance to learn how to use all the recovery gear out there and how to learn to drive the lines on the rocks!
