Located just south of Creede, Lime Creek Road is an easy, out-and-back, teeth-chattering washboard road leading to several dispersed campsites and hiking trailheads. This road is primarily used by hunters, hikers, and locals gathering firewood. Lime Creek begins off of Middle Creek, passing three scenic dispersed campsites good for vehicle camping, ground tents, and small trailers, followed by a split with Red Mountain Creek, where you can find an extra large grassy campsite good for groups and trailers. The remainder of the trail hosts only a few dispersed and remote campsites that are significant in size and space but are often shared with free-range cattle, leaving the ground peppered with cow pies. The trail ends just south of Snowshoe Mountain at an intersection with the Deep Creek hiking trail.

This road surface is a hard-packed, well-maintained gravel surface with no steep grades and multiple vehicles wide the entire way. This trail is suitable for any vehicle and any experience level. Cell service is spotty to non-existent.
