Tips

Fun play area with views of Pikes Peak and Air Force Academy. Popular area close to Woodland Park and an easy drive from Colorado Springs. Trail is loop with network of legal side roads to explore. Narrow, twisty and fun. Lunch at fantastic overlook above Air Force Academy or dramatic rock outcrop. Great area for a weekend campout with lots of dispersed camping once inside forest boundary. Ride your unlicensed vehicle from your campsite inside forest boundary. First 2.5 miles crosses sensitive private land and USAF property. Pass through quietly and courteously to avoid conflicts with property owners. Located in Pike National Forest. For current conditions call Pikes Peak Ranger District (719) 636-1602 Roads undulate with banked turns and narrow spots. Marked side roads are steep in places with occasional rocky challenges.

For current conditions call Pikes Peak Ranger District (719) 636-1602

Unlicensed vehicles are not allowed on Schubarth Road until they cross the boundary to Pike National Forest. The road is wide enough for transport vehicles until you reach that point. Lots of room to park and unload just inside forest boundary. Trail conditions can change without notice.

Going right at the fork in the trail is not for full sized trucks. But all around a fast trail with 1 part requiring 4 Wheel drive near the end.

Pretty easy trail with a couple obstacles that either require a spotter or some diligence navigating. Some pretty decent views too!

Had a lot of fun on that trail. just a fun relaxing drive with some cool overlooks. Lot of tight spots as well. Would be little more of a challenge running counter clockwise. Most of it can be ran in 2wd. Just one section you kinda have to pay attention to. Clockwise your going downhill on the one tricky spot. There was a ford focus at the bottom of that section parked so that kinda tells the tail with regards to difficulty. The trail itself is a fun drive though.

Great trail. Laid back with some sketchy areas. Not bad, but definitely get your attention. Took the kids. It was a great time.

Scenic drivingGreat!

Completed 10/6/2020. The autumn colors is why I rated 5 stars. Check it out while you can! View at top is pretty neat I haven't seen much like it. The only somewhat sketchy part is right after that. Any stock 4x4 can complete this trail. clearance helps. Don't need to but aired down to 30 psi for comfort

Great trail and nice map to follow from All Trails. We went at it counter clockwise, so nice if you stay the course. My son in an 09 Tacoma 3” lift w/33’s and I was in a 19 Chevy Trail Boss w/factory 2”lift. No clearance issues for either but there is a sketchy section in the middle. Lots of fun and the leaves were changing for an added bonus.

Maybe the best trail I’ve ever been on. All my friends said it had the best views they’ve ever seen. Easy for the most part but some areas where you’ll need a little more clearance. ‘21 RZR Turbo S4

Easy beginner trail with a couple obstacles. The hill climb was a little challenging for the inline 4 but over all did almost all of it in 2wd in a 1989 yj i4 with 4 inch lift and 33" at 35 psi

OHV/Off-road drivingGreat!

Did the loop clockwise in a TJ 33" with 3" lift today. Probably could have done it all in 2WD, but dropped into 4WD on the east side of the loop (311.A in particular). Counter-clockwise would have been more challenging due to a rocky obstacle on 311.A just southeast of 311 which would have been uphill going counter-clockwise. Took 311 all the way to the USAFA overlook which was a great place for lunch with a great view. Ended up taking 311.A all the way to where it dead-ends to the east (that detour didn't seem worthwhile). All in all, a very enjoyable trail. From Rampart Range Road, to the USAFA overlook, then back down the east side of the loop and back to Rampart Range Road was about 2 hours and 30 minutes drive-time not including lunch or my detour to the dead-end of 311.A. Hope to go back and explore some of the other roads (307.A and 307 east of 313).

A lot of fun. Did the loop clockwise. A couple of technical spots, otherwise pretty easy trail. Air downed to 18 psi. Had a blast. Will definitely do again.

Nice trail. Pretty east with only a couple somewhat technical areas. Very narrow in spots. Did the loop clockwise in an FJ Cruiser w/ 3in lift. The view at the overlook was absolutely gorgeous!

Great trail. Did it counter clockwise in a stock Jeep Gladiator on 33s. Did not air down. Did not disconnect front sway bar. The kids had a blast. Great views.

Great trail to a beautiful overlook of the academy. Did trail clockwise in my stock Subaru Forester with street tires. Definitely a little tricky on 3 little sections in the second half but chose your line wisely and you’ll be fine. Don’t think I could have made it going counter clockwise.

Awesome trail, did the loop counterclockwise with a stock 2019 Tacoma TRD Sport (not mine). No problems except for one spot at about 3 o'clock on the loop. Some big rocks and twisted road made for a challenge for a stock truck with no locker. Had tires hanging in air, but managed to get through unscathed. The 6 through 12 o'clock side of the loop is much easier and can probably be done with a reasonable crossover/SUV.

Fairly easy trail but kind of tight for a full-sized truck (2016 Silverado double cab) but still very doable. One or two technical areas, four wheel drive on those areas recommended but not necessary. We did the trail in two wheel drive with traction control turned off for most of it. Slightly modified Silverado: 2.5 inch motofab in front and 2 inch motofab rear 33 inch falken wildpeaks ATW3 4.5 inches taller than stock But doable in a stock vehicle.

The trail was very simple for my 2018 JKU Rubicon. There was only one part of it that had a couple technical parts which were a ton of fun! Excellent first trail of the 2020 season!

I did this route clock wise with a 4Runner. The first half of the trail is not medium rather than easy, and even can be handled with a 2 wheel drive car. The seconds part was more like easy with a some technical pars that I would rate as medium, only because it requires minimal off-road skills. I would make the route counter clock wise, all the way to the top of the “circle” in the maps, and then ride it back to make it a bit shorted but interesting. Landscape is awesome all along the route. Shay.

At the top of the loop there are some technical off road parts. Also, take a dead end titles 311A for a fun ramp part

This trail proved to be challenging only due to the fact there are two inclines that required winching all four Jeeps up, because they were extremely icy. Two of the Jeeps had lockers on both axles and were unable to make it to the top, and had uncontrolled downhill slides. If not for the icy hills, this would have been an enjoyable although not overly difficult trail. Unless you like spending a lot of time outside the vehicles winching, I would wait until the snow and ice melt in the spring to try this trail.

Trail was packed pretty good with icy snow. Some descents proved challenging to keep control. Most of the trail was easy to maneuver though. Fun rocks to drive through and great views.

Wish we would’ve hit this trail a few weeks ago with all the changing leaves... Went counter clockwise and had a good challenge. Took our brand new 2019 stock Rubicon and came out with only one scratch on the tire. Definitely will want a 4WD vehicle with some decent clearance to get through the loop. Some tricky spots in one area and the rest was fine!
