Overview

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.
