Rampart Range Rd
This is the point where you turn around and head back. I stopped for lunch. I recommend you touch the road and head back down the trail before stopping. As you can tell from the pictures, there’s nothing particular to look at, and cars driving along the road raise enough of a cloud of dust (but no “hearty ‘Hi-O, Silver!’”) that you won’t want to stay here. … From this point, enjoy the return hike, remembering to keep your mind and eyes open to the wonderful fact that the way back looks very different than the way out.
