About this event
Rampart Range Off-Road Tour Saturday April 22nd
Leave the crowded roads behind for an AMR off-road adventure that offers spectacular views and winding roads. We will navigate along Rampart Range Road west of Colorado Springs and then head north to Mt. Herman before decending into Monument for lunch. The tour will have an approximate distance of 60 miles with an expected duration of about 4.5 hours.
Rampart Range Road was built during the Great Depression (1930s) by the Civil Conservation Corps. Often very exposed and unsecured through the innumerable twists and turns, it offers spectacular views of Colorado Springs, Garden of the Gods and Waldo Canyon. The elevation along the road varies from 6,346 - 9,505 feet.
Please come prepared! There are NO SERVICES along Rampart Range Road, very few "exits" along the way and could have limited cell service.
The tour will end in Monument at La Casa Fiesta - New Mexican Restaurant (optional, with seperate checks).
NEW REGISTRATION PROCEDURES: PLEASE HAVE ALL PERSONS THAT WILL ATTEND THE TOUR REGISTER ON MREG. IF PASSENGERS REGISTER FIRST, THEN THE PRIMARY DRIVER, THE DRIVER CAN CHOOSE AT HIS/HER REGISTRATION WHO WILL BE RIDING IN THE CAR WITH THEM.
