Trail Overview

The Overlook Trail is a 3-mile ATV Trail in Rampart Range that goes north from Forest Service Road 507 to connect back to Rampart Range Road. The southern end of the trail is really wide open, like a dirt highway through a pine tree forest. There's nothing hard on this trail except for a few more rutted sections. It's gravelly and sandy at times. The north end is a bit more troughed, but conditions can often change in this forest based on snow and rain. It steadily descends to the bottom of the forest floor, and then it steadily climbs back up. The overlook is a wide-open view of the mountain range. There's a 0.5-mile-long cutoff trail near the north end that will avoid about 0.5 miles of very windy curvy trail and get you to the north trailhead faster. This trail is also how you access the Fern Singletrack, which is a more technical single track that makes a loop with the Overlook ATV Trail.

Difficulty

Overlook ATV Trail is an easy two-track with no obstacles except for some ruts and troughs.

Access Description

The Rampart Range Recreation Area is an extensive trail system in the Pike National Forest southwest of Sedalia, Colorado. There are several trailheads, but it is most commonly accessed from the north off of North State Highway 67. This is a highly maintained and regulated trail system; make sure you have your OHV registration card and decals. There are first-come-first-serve paid campsites and several restrooms. The area closes seasonally by December 1st and reopens in the spring sometime in April or May based on weather and mud conditions. All ATV trails in the area are designated for vehicles 50 inches or less and are mostly easy to intermediate difficulty, while the single tracks are more difficult. Note that only licensed vehicles are allowed on Rampart Range Road, so there are often separate trailheads at the start and end of each trail.
