Fun road descends through thick aspen groves to upper reservoir that provides water to the town of Palmer Lake. Obey all posted regulations. Great fall color. Camp at bottom before the gate. Typically, road is very rutted from erosion, which makes for an exciting drive, especially for novice SUV owners. Entrance to trail from Rampart Range Road is convenient to vehicles coming up Mt. Herman Road. Many dispersed camp spots and plenty of room to unload unlicensed vehicles along upper part of trail. Athough trail is short, it is longer than most side roads in the area, making it worth the time to unload. No unlicensed vehicles allowed on Rampart Range Road.
