Q: The reason you may not find much on the internet is that this awesome mtb trail area is called the Monument Preserve, NOT Mt. Herman Trail! Mt. Herman Trail is about 7 miles further down Mt. Herman Road and goes to the top of Mt. Herman. Friends of the Monument Preserve have a website, and I have occasionally found Monument Preserve trail maps at local bike shops. Locals also refer to these as the "work center trails" as the Hot Shots have a training facility here. -mikeandlorena
A: Monument Preserve is a very nice riding area -- not tons of mileage but too small plus there is a lot of variety from very beginner trails to advanced trails. I'm guessing you would agree, personally I would consider the Mt. Herman Trail as part of the Preserve trail network. It is depicted as such on the maps. I recently found a map at Criterium bike shop in COS. IMO, one should definitely by a map before going here the first time. There is essentially no signage in the network, but it is hard to get truly lost -- Mt Herman is west and the entire system generally slopes east down to the THD. So grab a map and enjoy exploring ... and the riding.
