Welcome to CO. There are plenty of places for that rig to go here. You will have more places than you have time.
Several of the folks here do use CB but many have HAM that we use for trail communications, might want to check into that.

Thanks! I can’t wait to get out and hit the trails. as far as a HAM setup I’ve been holding off on that purchase till I find out which HAM setups most people use in both hand held and dedicated vehicle mounted units. Where I wheel back home in Pennsylvania CB is all people use.

Welcome. Good looking rig.

As Morris said, there are trails galore out here. Most will be closing soon for seasonal closures, but some can be run year round.

GJK,
Go to your local Ham Radio Outlet, the one in Denver set me up with a reasonable priced unit. With radio, antenna and info on how to use it. As a vet I was able to take the test for free. Even though it is not really too costly and the local shop will sell you a study book and if you can answer the questions in it you will pass the test. Almost anything that suits your budget will work. A hand held will more than suffice till you can make a determination (if you even want a mounted unit) by checking out other's units. If you are not licensed you can monitor the conversations to know what is going on.
I used CB for years as we were really not that far away from each other where I used to wheel in SoCal. Sold the mounted CB with the Pinzgauer and got a HH for the Rover as it seemed that CB wasn't used much here.
Good book for info on CO trails. https://www.amazon.com/Guide-Colorado-Backroads-4-Wheel-Drive-Trails/dp/1934838268/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2DJLB87FSI7HY&keywords=charles+wells+4-wheels-drive-trails&qid=1567958263&s=gateway&sprefix=Charles+Wel,undefined,163&sr=8-2
