Rampart range road is closed from Monument,(Mt. Herman Road) south to GOG. I am not sure you can get anywhere near the res. You might be able to get to the res above Palmer Lake if you go from Dakan Road down, but I am not sure. We drove by Mt. Herman on Saturday and it was still blocked off.
...and if all else fails, use a bigger hammer!
