Mountain Biking Rampart Range Road

The full Rampart Range Road runs the backside of the Front Range from Colorado Springs all the way to Castle Rock. It's very unusual to ride the whole thing--most get in some training by riding the steady grade climbing a little over 3,000 vertical feet in about 12 miles, and then turn around.

    This is all road, relentlessly uphill for the first 12 miles, often washboardy, and a real chore. Best for serious cardio workouts. It used to be a great way to loop with Williams Canyon, but since the Waldo Canyon fire, that option is no more. A favored route among local hammerheads is to ride out as far as Rampart Reservoir, do the 15 miles of legitimate singletrack around the reservoir, and head back for a monster 52 mile epic.
