Vehicle Types


Easy forest road links Monument to “Garden of the Gods.”

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.


Trail Ratings Defined

You’ll see cars on the upper parts of Rampart Range Road near Woodland Park and Rampart Reservoir. Fewer cars go all the way to Garden of the Gods Park because the road gets increasingly rougher as you descend. The condition of Mt. Herman Road varies depending on recency of maintenance. It is narrow and steep in places and large ruts are common. High-clearance 4WD is recommended.

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.
