Trail Overview

Garber is an easy ATV Trail near the north end of the Rampart Range Recreation Area. There are dirt trailheads at both the north and south entrances to the trail off of Rampart Range Road. From the south end, it steadily drops down to the intersection with Tomahawk (#685), then climbs back up towards the northern trailhead, also crossing Beaver (#688) on the way. Most of the trail is very easy with sweeping wide turns, banked corners, and some whoops as it meanders through the pine tree forest. The surface is pretty gravelly and sandy mixed in with the dirt. There are some deep troughed sections that could be more difficult for an ATV due to having to pick the high points of the trail. There is a somewhat steep hill that has cement pavers built in to help provide traction to riders. There is also a 0.6-mile cutoff trail near the southern end that is more direct to the trailhead.

Difficulty

This is an easy ATV trail with a couple rutted sections that may be slightly harder for an ATV.

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.
