Trail Overview

The Fern Single Track is an intermediate dirt bike trail in Rampart Range with some more challenging rock obstacles. It's 1 mile long and makes a loop with the Overlook ATV Trail, which is also how you access this trail. Most of the trail is intermediate difficulty, with lots of curvy and shelfy spots. Riding clockwise, it drops down through the forest to cross a ravine, then climbs back up some rocky ledges. There are lots of ruts to watch out for when riding above the ravine. On the way back up, there is a tricky rock pinch you have to go up and over that is almost guaranteed to get your pegs and handlebars wedged at the same time between two huge boulders. The most obvious line gets you sucked in between the boulders. It continues with several rock ledges that are easy to get hung up on. This one is a fun challenge.

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.
