HomeMHJC 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 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 Patrol 1: Hobo Jeepers
Patrol Leader: Buzz Davis
New Members
Patrol 1, the Hobos, enjoys seeing the sights while bouncing around in our Jeeps. We are a mixture of 2 & 4 door Jeeps, and even a Bronco in the mix. Most everyone is on 33s or 35s and has various modifications, but there are also a couple of pretty much stock vehicles too. We mostly do easy to moderately difficult trails (3-5 with an occasional 6, out of 10). We generally make day trips on most Saturdays from May to October to the numerous trails west of Denver. Once or twice a year, we typically have a 3-4 day trip to SW Colorado and/or Moab. We also get together every month at various members’ houses around Denver to socialize and have dinner.

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!

Trips include day trips, weekends and week-long excursions. Most of our vehicles are equipped to handle most any kind of Jeeping.
Patrol 6: F Troop Patrol 6: F Troop
Patrol Leader: Frank Eichenlaub
Patrol 6, “F”Troop” to our friends, was founded under the concept that we all can work together to achieve, that "serious" needs to be left behind, winching is fun, and snow makes the trails interesting. We are diverse, CJ 3, CJ5, CJ6, 715, CJ7, XJ, YJ, ZJ, TJ, LJ, Samurai, Rock Buggy, even a JKR and JKU is in the mix. We bring the right rig to the trail of the day, many of us have several different types to maximize the occasion. Serious trails are the normal outing, we seldom take the gravel roads. Performance upgrades are built, not just bought, and our vehicles are custom. A core of experienced wheelers and some unique outliers make us eclectic and sometimes hard to bear. We are always there for club outings, events and whenever a volunteer is needed. Trail maintenance, being prepared, safe and capable, land access and time on the trail are important.
Patrol 7: Rainbow Chasers Patrol 7: Rainbow Chasers
Patrol Leader: David Boening

Meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month at different members' homes. Guests are always welcome at our meetings and outings.

Members are spread out across Colorado with our 'adopted Coloradoans' that live out of state. We enjoy trails that range from scenic/ historic to challenging/ extreme. We welcome singles, families and old farts of all kinds, as long as you have a good sense of humor and like to have a good time.

Patrol 16: Canonballers
Patrol Leader: Dan Casebolt

Do you like wheeling topless and getting caught in the rain?

If you’re not into drama, if you aren’t very vain.

If you like pitching tents at midnight, before a good trail run.

We’re the patrol you’ve been looking for, join us, and have fun!

Patrol 16 is an irreverent but mostly harmless group of folks that enjoy the outdoors and our sport. We work hard putting into the club what we want to get out of it and we play hard when on trails and in the campground. It is important to us to volunteer helping with club events, trail clean ups, trail openings or anything the club needs. We have a diverse demographic. Some of us are older than dirt some are just younger than dirt. Some of us have kids some of us made smarter choices. Most of us have dogs but the weird ones have cats. We take road trips, camp and wheel. We have our 9-5’s that supply all the stress and drama we need so we prefer to leave that out of our patrol experience.

We don’t care who said what about whom. We care about who is wheeling\camping where.

Patrol Leader: Darcy Thompson
New Members

This ain’t your mommas knitting circle!

The Rock-ettes is the first and only all-female patrol in the long and rich history of the MHJC. Above and beyond all else Rock-ettes embrace Jeep Life! Formed to give the ladies in club a place to feel supported and to grow in a fun, inclusive environment. While once a male dominated sport, women have proven they are just as skilled and passionate as our male counterparts. We enjoy exploring all levels of of-road trails and don’t mind challenging ourselves. When we’re not on the trail, we’re getting together for other fun activities and giving back to the community.
