Castle Creek, FS 130, starts on Fall Creek Road and goes onto a shelf along the west side of the Fall Creek Canyon. The area was burned by a forest fire in about 2012 and is covered in dead, standing trees with newer bushes and other vegetation starting to grow. The road is primarily on forest service land, but there is private land, some of which have cabins. Unless you can be sure you are on public land, it is best to stay on the road or the numbered side roads leading off the main road. FS 130 is open in the summer only as it is not cleared nor maintained in the winter. FS 130 connects with FS 136 to access the House Mountain area.

While dispersed camping is allowed, there are no campsites along the road. Dispersed campsites are on the small numbered roads leading off of the FS 130. Please ensure any site is on public land.

The primary hazards on FS 130 are washouts and ruts in the road, downed trees, and livestock. This is open range, so it’s possible to have cattle on or near the road.
