Patrols

In 1956, Mile-Hi Jeep Club was formed and grew to where it is today. Currently, the club has over 400 vehicle members that make up the 20 Patrols that are within MHJC. Each Patrol has an elected Patrol Leader that is on the Club's Board of Directors.

Each Patrol has its own personality and members are encouraged to join the Patrol that best suits them. Members are always welcome to go on trail rides with any of the Patrols, not just the Patrol they are in. Patrols range from groups that like to do the mild and scenic trails to other Patrols that enjoy the extreme rock crawling trails. It only takes four members to start a new Patrol. Each Patrol has their own by-laws approved by the club Board of Directors. Each Patrol sets its own meetings, dues (if applicable), trail runs and policies.

Look below to find out more about each Patrol within Mile-Hi Jeep Club and to visit their websites.

Patrol 1: Hobo Jeepers
The spirit of a "Hobo" and the fun of Jeeping are the ideals of our name. As Hobos ride the trails, 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.

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!
