Mountain Biking Rampart Reservoir

This trail is an excellent ride for riders of almost all skill levels. The scenery is excellent, the trail is fast yet technical, and the length is just right. The only problem is, some of the other users of this trail aren't too friendly (depends). Anyway, to avoid any dirty looks, etc, ride this route clockwise. Follow the double track / dirt road down from the trailhead. At the bridge on the right, CONTINUE straight to do this loop in an acceptable manner. There are alot of side trails here but as long as you stay close to the lake front, you will not get lost. This trail reminds me of some east coast rides, particularly lake rides like Tsali and Owl's roost. Lots of trees, lots of technical sections involving large rock formations (although each of these can be avoided by taking an alternate route around them). Keep your eye out. Oh yeah, and be courteous. When someone yields trail to you, say thanks, say hello when you pass, etc. A great ride.

You can also go camping nearby at Meadow Ridge.

Getting there
From Colorado Springs and I-25, take US 24 West to Woodland Park. Turn right just past McDonald's onto Baldwin Rd. Follow this through the stop signs (at least 3). Go about 3 miles and turn right onto Loy Creek Rd. at the 3 way intersection. Continue on this paved road to the four way intersection of dirt roads. Turn right, following the sign for Eagle Creek (this is Rampart Range Rd.). Trailhead is approximately 2.5 miles on the left.
