Battle Creek Road is the main entry point into an extensive network of easy to moderate trails along the Battle Creek Valley and the surrounding rolling hills. This out and back trail is 9.5 miles each way, taking 3-4 hours for the round trip. But you can easily fill a whole day or even a couple of days exploring all the side trails and spurs in the network. Much of the trail crosses open grass and sagebrush hills with occasional stands of scrub oak and aspen and a few groves of pine and fir. Since much of the trail is out in the open, you are treated to spectacular views of the southern Sierra Madre Range as it crosses from Wyoming into Colorado. Many areas are suitable for dispersed camping, although very few have established fire rings.
