Overview

Solitude Creek is situated in Roosevelt National Forest just east of Estes Park. It is a loop off of the popular out-and-back, Pole Hill. This loop offers some truly epic camping opportunities and provides some of the most stunning views the Pole Hill area has to offer. There is one notable obstacle along Solitude Creek, which is called The Notch. Like the other trails in this area, any skill level or vehicle build will have a fun day out on this trail. The obstacles you will encounter will give the lesser built vehicles a challenge and will give the more built vehicles a chance to flex out. If you are into camping, definitely bring the tent out for this one. If you are more of a day tripper, make sure you bring a lunch as this trail provides some extremely scenic places to enjoy a bite to eat while enjoying gorgeous views of the surrounding environment. For a fantastic day of offroading, combine this trail with Panorama Peak and Pole Hill. Run all three trails for a great time close to the Front Range.
