General Description

Gramp's Trail, #657, begins at Rampart Range Road approximately 2.25 miles south of Flat Rocks Campground. The trail leads 2.7 miles southwest to Cabin Ridge Trail (675). Gramp's is considered to be an intermediate level trail, which gets a moderate amount of use.

The National Forest Service challenges all off-highway vehicle (OHV) users to TREAD LIGHTLY on public lands. The Tread Lightly program educates and informs forest users on how to enjoy recreation opportunities without damaging resources or negatively affecting others enjoyment of public lands. Potential damage to our natural environment is intensified due to increasing popularity of OHVs. (This category of vehicles includes 4 WD, ATVs, dirt bikes, mountain bikes and snowmobiles.) TREAD LIGHTLY was created to curb damage to soil, water, wildlife, visual and solitude components on the forest. For more information contact any Ranger District Office.
