Re: Rampart Range road
I was just up there all weekend. Rampart Range road is EXTREMELY crappy right now. Easy to drive, but so bumpy and washboarded out that it really wasn't that fun. Of course the views were spectacular.
I came in from the north on Mt. Herman. The road dorfs is talking about is called Power Line Road, and I have heard it is a nasty little cuss. I didn't try it due to time restrictions. I headed up north of Divide to Hackett Gulch and Longwater Gulch. Both trails are WAY fun and I would highly recommend them. Seriously steep, loose climbs. Be aware that there are several Platte River crossings, and a couple were up to my floorboards (2.5" lifted CJ w/33's). I actually had water come in through my rust holes!
My first trip to the area, very scenic. Hackett and Longwater were fun, but everything else around there I saw was pretty easy.
