Trail Overview

The primary trail surface is decomposed granite with some dirt and persistent surface mud. The trail tends to hold standing water on the north end. There is a great, quiet, and scenic cutoff from Rampart Range Road to Mount Herman Road in the Rampart Range. Late fall, winter, and early spring may cause ice damming on the intermittent Beaver Creek. These ice dams cause significant ice flows, and the low, north-facing area holds deep top-loaded snow. Search and rescue have conducted hundreds of family rescues here in the winter. Some GPS units used to show this as a "shortest" route from Woodland Park, CO, to Denver.
