No idea.... that is up to the geniuses at the USFS
. If you head up to Woodland Park, turn RIGHT at McDonalds go past the schools. You'll come to a fork in the road, there's a huge green water tank there too, turn towards the RIGHT and you end up at a Four way intersection. That is Rampart Range Rd, if you turn right there you can enter the National Forest up to the entrance of Rampart Reservoir. You'll get to see some of the burn area and the mitigation the USFS FINALLY decided to do.
If you go straight at the interestion it'll take you to the backside of the Air Force Acadamy.
A Left takes you either to Monument or Denver depending on which trail you take.
Hope that helps....
