Busy with motocross traffic on the weekends, these trails are great for mountain bikes Monday through Thursday. The Rampart Range trail system is a huge network of multi-use trails just West of Sadalia, CO. On the weekends these trails a full of motocross riders, but on the weekdays they make for some excellent mountain biking trails. This loop can be accessed from Rampart Range Road or from Jackson Creek Road. There are a lot of trail intersections, but the route is fairly easy to follow. The important trail numbers are 788, 682, 690, & 681. There are sections of the trail that have no cell phone coverage, so you will need offline access. There is not much technical difficulty to this loop, more just gravely cross country style trails. The gravel can be problematic when climbing at times, but it won't slow you down too much. Overall a great workout, beautiful forested scenery, and wide open trails.

the loop provided on the site is not for offroad driving, its for a dirtbike. tried to do the loop as described and was on smooth rampart range rd the whole time. where you are supposed to turn to make the loop you must be in something much smaller. i've offroaded here years ago but couldn't seem to find anything you could drive a truck on? not sure if i was in the wrong section or rampart is exclusively UTV and skinnier now? either way saw some fall colors and completely backtracked to long hollow/rule ridge/manchester creek. a video of those 3 trails can be found at:

A good easy to moderate trail. Had a blast with some great lookout points along the way.

Lots of trees but not much of a view. Perfect for ATVs but repetitive for hiking. Not too much of an incline with loose gravel

A well maintained gravel road that ends in the Garden of the Gods. It comes down the Front Range pretty much the entire distance. Very busy on the north end; many ATV trails.

Rampart is a very fun trail with lots of trails that branch off in the area. We have been pretty lucky when we have gone not to be swarmed with a mass amount of people. This area is known for the off roading of ATVs and can get very busy. Our first adventure to this area took us near Jackson creek where we found an amazing camping spot. This was our very first off road trip together and it was very exciting. We went in late may so that helped with avoiding the people as well. Rampart was very groomed and only bumpy due to campers and trailer being hauled on that trail. But it got a little rougher when we ventured onto other off roads in the area. Our second adventure there took us to Daken mountain.
