Power Line Trail, #690, follows power lines that run parallel to Rampart Range Road. The trail leads north-south for 7.7 miles from Highway 67 to Cabin Ridge Picnic Ground. This route is a good connector trail, and alternative to riding on Rampart Range Road, for bikes that aren't street legal.
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.
