“An awesome gravel grinder from COS to Monument passing through the Rampart Reservoir.”— J Erik Hartel
Featured Race - Aug 25, 2018
Also, neither the New Santa Fe Regional Trail nor the Garden of the Gods are closed for the event, so the utmost caution should taken in these very popular areas.
This route circumnavigates the main monuments in the Garden before turning westward into the mountains. The subsequent climb up Rampart Range Road is epic with a nearly 4000 ft elevation gain and stunning views of Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak.
After climbing to ~8,000 feet, the route follows well-marked gravel roads around Rampart Reservoir before descending to Monument on Mount Herman Road.
