After having lunch at the start of Fern Creek, we made our way up the trail. The snow did not look too deep when we first saw it on the trail. It was easy going, but that would soon change. The higher up we got the deeper the snow got.
Around half way up Fern Creek there was a "road closed" sign off to the side of the trail. It wasn't actually on the trail, and there were tire tracks ahead of us going up Fern Creek. So we just went on making our way up because the trail wasn't actually closed.
There were a few spots where we had to work at the trail to get through the snow, but it was not too bad at all.
We soon made it to Rampart Range Road. There was a small parking lot at the end of Fern Creek where we took a small break. Then we made our way to Mount Herman Road.
Before we reached Mount Herman Road on the way down Rampart Range Road, we ran into a stuck Jeep that had attempted to take a snowy side trail and had gotten stuck right near the main road. So, Matt pulled the Jeep out before we headed on to our last trail.
