General Description

Cabin Ridge Motorized trail connects Rampart Range Road, 300, to Highway 67 south of Sprucewood. This trail is rated easy by the Forest Service and used frequently. The trail is 4 miles long one way and connects with trails 657, 674, 676, and 677. Ample parking is available at the Rampart Range Road Trailhead.

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.

Directions from Deckers: Highway 67 Access: Travel north on Highway 67 to Oxyoke, where the highway makes a sharp right turn. Follow Highway 67 for approximately 6 miles to its intersection with trail 675 on the eastern side of the road.

Turn left (south) on the Rampart Range Road and drive approximately 7 miles to the trailhead and parking area on the eastern side of the road. If you reach Devil's Head Picnic Ground you've gone too far south.
