Rampart Reservoir Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is the trail to introduce someone to mountain biking. The singletrack dodges around the reservoir among boulders and bushes, and numerous side trails offer endless variety for exploring. While suitable for beginners, gonzo riders won't have to look long for a challenge. Why doesn't everyone play here? They do. Located southwest of Woodland Park. Tread: Excellent conditions throughout the 9.2 miles of singletrack, 3.1 miles of doubletrack, and 1.7 miles of paved road."
--David Crowell, Mountain Biking Colorado Springs (Falcon Guides).
"The Rampart Reservoir Shoreline Loop offers mountain bikers of any ability the chance to test their skills on a variety of terrain. From sand to gravel to rocks and soft forest earth, the loop delivers it all. Within a stone’s throw of the reservoir and under the watchful eye of Pikes Peak, this trail follows the shoreline all the way around, providing opportunities for fishing and picnicking. A favorite among locals, the Rampart Reservoir Shoreline Loop can get crowded on the weekends. It’s best that mountain bikers ride the trail in a clockwise direction, so as not to come upon riders unexpectedly around the many tight and rocky curves."
