“A climb and descent along Mount Herman Road.”— Allen Tanner
The first 2.5 miles wind around the front of Mount Herman. The dirt road is well maintained, and there is not a lot of traffic. Multiple trails from Monument Preserve Loop feed into the road.
The next mile is more steep but not technical. The takeoff to Mule and Monument Trail (715) are accessible from the road.
The climb continues until about mile 7, then levels out significantly. Large boulders in aspen and pine groves line the road and further down the road, views of Pike's Peak over Woodland Park come into view.
At mile 9.5, Mount Herman Road crosses Forest Road 322A. At mile 11.5, Mount Herman Road meets Rampart Range Rd.
