General Description

The Overlook Trail, #682, leads 2.8 miles southeast from Flat Rocks Campground to Rim Road. The terrain is rated intermediate and it connects with Trails 681, 683 and 685.

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 Highway 67 and Rampart Range Road: Travel south on Rampart Range Road 4 miles to the parking area next to Flat Rocks Campground. The trail begins immediately across Rampart Road.

Normally Open: Year-round .
