Ramp building question

I'm building a couple of concrete ramps for a creek bridge I put together last year. It's designed to support a riding mower and operator. The ramps will be 7' W x 10' L.
I was wondering how deep the amount of base material I should use and the recommended thickness of the concrete itself. Also, if I should build concrete pads for support and stability and if so what specs should I be looking at and how to connect them to the ramps themselves.

Welcome to the forums!

3.5"-4" thick should be fine for the slab although the edges may need to be thicker. You want to make sure it doesn't get washed out along the perimeter. Are you concerned with any frost heave?
