Great loop trail. Largely shaded, with minimal traffic. Mostly bikers coming through. Easy incline.

I believe this is also Segment 1 of the Colorado Trail. Do it!!!

*The map shows it’s right before rampart range road, but it’s actually right after (on the right)*

Great trail! Very wide so great for groups, and you get some cardio with the hills but nothing too strenuous. Little shade so bring lots of water.

Another trail, no dogs??

Nice wide trail. We did about 3 miles and enjoyed the view and flowers the whole way.

Hot and Dry.. pack lots of water because there is none till the fire house. Shade is rare... sunblock for sure. Real nice views though.

Had a great time as a novice 4-wheeler. You have to be careful of the ATV's that go very quickly on the one-lane roads, but as long as everyone is paying attention, it's fun. Some of the side roads are challenging for a stock SUV, but the biggest challenge is vehicles coming the other way around sharp bends. The ATV'ers and bikers are vigilant, not so much the SUV'ers. The latter is the most problematic due to the width. Those who know the rules (downhill has the right of way) are cool. Almost everyone we met either way was courteous and friendly. Great way to spend a day getting lost in the forest!

they say the burn area is not a place to see..It is beautiful as it recovers.

A pretty decent off road trail that isn’t too far from the city.

Views were ok. Trail didn’t always feel like it was clearly marked. I’d recommend alt trails.

Rampart Range is primarily used for dirt bike and atv riding. If you visit Rampart with any other intentions you will likely be disappointed. My family loves this place as it offers over a hundred miles of trails that vary in difficulty. The views are mostly through wooded trees unless you know where to go.

I would strongly encourage those who write the details on these pages to completely change the description of Rampart Range so that people have a better idea of what to expect. A brilliant time on a dirt motorcycle and a disappointment for any other use. Which is a huge thumbs up from me!!

I absolutely loved this trail! It's in great condition, very little muddy or snowy spots although I only did about 5 miles of it starting from South Platt area before turning aroud. The elevation gain is surprisingly easy, lots of switchbacks, you don't realize how high is you get until you hit the top! The views from up there are stunning and there are some great places to just sit and look at the view! There's a good sized dirt lot to park in that has a bathroom (not really upkept at the moment) and both times I've been out this way there's been plenty of parking but that could change with summer coming. Take a bit of caution though, a mountain biker told me there were some cougar tracks a bit farther down the trail!

Hiked the first four miles of this segment from the Platte River trailhead. Wasn't too hot, and there wasn't hardly another soul on the trail. Staggering views of the wildfire scar. No ice, no snow, no mud, but lots of crunchy gravel.

.........oh, and the same goes for mountain bikers as well. It’s all single track in heavy trees. The mountain bikers will have to hop off the trail every time because it’s upon them to stay out of motorcycles way.....every time.

This trail system is for motorcycles and 50” ATV’s ONLY!! The trail use description in this app IS ENTIRELY WRONG. There is a road for 4x4.....but no 4x4 TRAILS.
Hike at your own risk....there are no vistas, just trees. And you just might get run over by a motorcycle....:or your poor dog if you choose to bring pets along to get freaked out by the noise.
I ride motorcycles there every weekend....and a day or two during the week. If you are dumb enough to hike there.....I will be sure to give the throttle a couple extra twists when I come screaming upon you and blast by you as closely as I can...every time!

In summer.......it’s like going through the bowels of hell! Burn scar for most of the trail with no shade or cover! Definitely bring a wide brimmed hat and carry water. Fill up at the fire station! Beautiful vistas but brutal to get to.

prob be great for mountain biking but pretty boring without much views for hiking. Not much incline

walking this trail makes me want to say screw it all and go live out in a wood cabin.

Didn’t get a chance to do this hike, since the trail is closed until April 30th, 2018.

awesome dirtbike/hike trail with mountain views se pic on my instagram the_book_of_jeff

2nd review. Finally came back to finish this trail. It’s a great hike. We took it out to the turn around but then kept going to Roxborough Park. Beautiful views and a good moderate hike. Great trail 1/12/18. Fun and very few people.

Brutal in summer. No water. hike/bike way early to beat the heat. just passed through on bikepacking trip. wide open views for miles.

Fantastic Trail! It’s great even in the winter when there’s not much snow!

Beautiful hike. It’s a super well maintained forest service road. You could drive a tiny car down this road.
Loved the hike, saw no one else. Beautiful, easy incline. Took the Colorado Trail back to the car instead of the road like the app had.

Cool drive on unmaintained dirt roads through the woods up to the trail head, but FS348 is closed Dec - April, so we didn’t actually get to do the trail as described here. Will come back in May to check this out!

Initial climb is a series of switch-backs, after first mile you hit the remnants of a forrest fire and you're in exposed terrain. After another mile (so at MM 2+) you hit the ridge line and are back in beautiful forrest.

Ran the trail in December '17 so started out cold/cool then warmed-up. Trail in great shape -- limited water rut, well marked, zero snow and no ice.

this trail should be changed from moderate to easy. a unicycle would do fine here. it seems they've been piling/removing old dead trees and graded the trails in the area to bring in heavy equipment. had great fall colors and ran pretty high speed which was fun. i took this to 362, rule ridge, 364, manchester creek. if you'd like to see a video of the trip i have one up at:

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:
