the world's most spectacular roads

Rampart Range Road


Rampart Range Road is a 60-mile-long gravel road that travels the forested crest of the Rampart Range, in Colorado, USA. 

This trail begins in Garden Of The Gods in the city of Colorado Springs, Colorado and snakes a path some 60 miles in a northerly direction ending at Highway 67 between Sedalia and Deckers. The scenic gravel road yields spectacular views of Pikes Peak, the prairie, and the rugged Front Range and Tarryall Mountains, and offers quiet camping, diverse mountain biking and camping opportunities, and one of Colorado’s last fire lookouts atop Devils Head.

This road is very exposed and unsecured driveway in innumerable twists and turns. Situated in the Pike National Forest, Rampart Range Road was built during the Great Depression of the 1930's by the Civil Conservation Corps. There are absolutely no services along Rampart Range Road and very few "exits" along the way.
The surface of the road is gravel and sand, and chains or snow tyres can be required throughout the year. The quality of the road varies but all is traversable by automobile and a four-wheel drive vehicle is not necessary. However, if you own a four-wheeler or a dirt bike, you will find an abundance of challenging trails to enjoy and test your mettle. The road winds up at an elevation of 6,346 to 9,505 feet.
