Description 

This area has a high concentration of problems. It is divided into 5 sub-areas of A through E.

See below in "slideshow" window for overviews and problem locations in each sub-area.

Getting There 

From the Rampart Range Road intersection with CO Hwy 67, turn South (left if coming from Sedalia) onto RRR, then very quickly right into the ORV parking lot. Park at the far (W) corner near the restrooms, and make a short hike following the ridge down to the rocks. After 100 yards, be sure to go down and to the right rather than straight and slightly up.

See the map.
