Trail Overview

787 is one of the longer ATV trails in the Rampart Range Recreation Area at almost 8 miles long. It starts at the most northern staging area on Rampart Range Road right off State Highway 67, at the same trailhead as the Beginners Trail. This one is made up of tons of tight little curves. It zig-zags its way south to meet up with the Barr Trail (#673). It meanders the side of the mountain the whole way, on a bit shelfy of a trail, going through valleys, aspen groves, and past giant granite boulders. The trail stays pretty steady with small uphills and downhills the whole time, but there is one bigger climbing section in the middle of the trail. There's nothing too hard, but there are a lot of whoops, a couple of sections with embedded rocks or roots, and a wooden bridge. If you connect this trail with the Barr Trail, you can ride all the way to the town of Sprucewood and get lunch at the Sprucewood Inn.

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.
