I don't recommend Mt Blanca in your new wagon. After nearly rolling on the way up, I chose a safer line. It did not go well...

Some trails that I like in the wagon:
Mojave Road
Death Valley trails: Mengel Pass, Steele Pass, Lippincott Pass, Echo Canyon
Colorado: (so far, got way more exploration to do)
Hermit Pass (easy but rough)
Blanca Peak (plan on scratches and dents in a wagon)
Medano Pass (lots of brush, plan on scratches)
Not all those who wander are lost

With Blanca I have a policy...a tire spins and I winch. No questions asked. That being said it seems plenty wide. Really Colorado trails in general are probably good. As opposed to Sierra Nevada trails. Death Valley trails are wide open as well. Maybe a Thanksgiving trip next year? T-Dinner at Briggs cabin is always a classic.

Here are some of my Death Valley favourites.

Warm Springs Canyon/Butte Valley to Goler Canyon - Nice to stay overnight at Geologist cabin if it's available. Also Saline Valley south to north or Lippincott Mine to Ubehebe is nice lot of open desert camping along the road.

If you are feeling more adventurous Pleasant Canyon to Briggs Cabin is the bomb.

Some teaser pics below.
