Platte River Road is located to the west of the popular Rampart Range trail system and travels along a beautiful section of the South Platte River ending near Buffalo Creek, CO.  This portion of the Platte River Road is used primarily for traveling, and there aren’t very many areas to park or pull-off.  You can swim and fish in this area, but you have to get there early to grab one of the few parking spots available on this section of the road.  North Platte River Road is a primarily graded dirt road with a few narrow sections, only big enough for one vehicle at a time.

The southernmost portion of this road connects directly to South Platte River Road, which takes you deeper into Pike National Forest and connects you to a plethora of hiking/biking trails, campsites, fishing spots, offroad trails, and even canoe trail systems.

There aren't any camping sites on this road, but you can find plenty in the surrounding areas.
