Rampart single track.

Has anything been built and opened since 770(Skeleton)?

Just wonder if I've missed anything.. I know I've seen some trail building, but didn't know if anything was opened and/or marked?

Might go out tomorrow.

Betting it's under snow.

We opened Turtle Mtn this past summer, this goes from the west side of Skeleton up to 677. This trail replaces the old 649 trail that went down and crossed the creek. We lost that after Hayman.

I believe the next section slated for early next Summer will be the reroute/return to singletrack of Devils Slide

Turtle Mt is very narrow...not sure what bike you plan to take. I don't think my XR650R can fit between the boulder pinch. I have yet to try though.

BTW, the main gate closed Dec. 1 (County closes it each winter as they don't plow it)

So you'd have to ride down to the singletrack from the north lot or some other access point.

Rampart was dry and dusty 1 week ago. Has it snowed since then?

90% snow now, only a few inches deep and not packed or iced over yet. I was a little disappointed when I got up there seeing all the snow, but it was actually a fun day.

Its going to get worse now though with the atvs packing everthig down to a nice icey base. I had pretty bald tires and did ok but I think screws will be needed from here on out

Thanks for everything you and the RRMMC do, Rod.

Seeing new trails, particularly single track, go in is really unbelievable considering all the others seem to be getting shut down.

I take ZERO credit for this one. With my kids getting older, my time has suddenly disappeared. While I was part of a lot of walking, cutting, marking etc... of Skeleton, I have not had the opportunity to even touch Turtle.

So I won't take any thanks, but there is a group that does a LOT for the Rampart area (some who lurk here), and they deserve a big thank you.

You are right though, we know Rampart is what it is, but it IS an area that proves a proactive group and a strong partnership with the FS CAN result in new trails!
