We’ve combined Mt. Herman Road, a true backcountry drive, with the best, most scenic part of Rampart Range Road. The southern end of Rampart Range Road, although well maintained, offers unique, incredible views as it descends to famous Garden of the Gods Park. Legal side roads to the west of Rampart Range Road offer dispersed camping, gnarly spots and great views of Highway 24 below. No unlicensed vehicles are allowed on the main route described here. For this, we recommend nearby Schubarth Loop, Trail #91.

Ran Mt. Herman Rd and tried to do Rampart Range Rd. today. Mt Herman Rd was open and fine, tried to drive Rampart into Colorado Springs. It is closed (gates locked) at Waypoint 04 on page 215 of the CO guidebook.

Mt. Herman Road is closed between waypoint 1 and 2. I was trailing in reverse when I found it on May 23rd, 2021.

Drove this road this morning. Lots of traffic of all kinds the entire distance. Jeeps, pickups, cars, Mommy Vans, bicycles, you name it. The road is very heavily washboarded for much of its length making for an uncomfortable ride. It is also quite dusty right now. Great views in many places though. Plenty of pullouts and overlooks if you can stand the dust from passing traffic.
