Monon Hill Road is a short, dead-end spur road off Bachelor Road, 5 minutes west of downtown Creede. The road offers abundant dispersed camping and spectacular views of the Rio Grande Valley. The road starts as an extremely easy, hard-packed road and passes numerous large and level campsites good for travel trailers and RVs. The sites at the beginning are fairly close together, so you will definitely hear your neighbor's every move. Large recreational vehicles should be aware that the farther along the road you travel, the rougher it becomes. At 0.4 miles, you travel down a moderate, loose slope that could be troublesome for these large vehicles, especially when traveling back up this hill. After the hill, a few more dispersed sites are spaced well away from each other before the trail dead ends overlooking a tailings pond.
