Battle Creek, FR 6501, is a moderately difficult 1.2-mile trail in the central Black Hills near Rockerville. Battle Creek connects South Rockerville Road and Teepee Gulch Road.

The trail is rocky and heavily forested but wide enough to minimize the risk of pinstriping. Expect ruts, embedded and loose rocks, mud, and standing water, especially after rain or in wet seasons. There are two main sections containing larger rocks, generally no more than 12 inches tall and moderate grade. A stock 4x4 can navigate this trail with good tire placement, but scraping a differential or low-hanging running board would be easy.

Due to the heavily wooded area, there are no good campsites along the trail. Nearby Teepee Gulch Road has several campsites suitable for vehicle or tent camping.
