Trail Information

Highlights

Jenny Creek is a short fun OHV trail (Permit Required) that spurs off Rollins Pass East Trail. This straight through trail is accessible during the summer months typically July - October. Some of the Highlights are the Jenny Creek water crossing, beautiful dense forest scenery, pine beetle kill clear cut area and the alpine lakes also located at the top of Rollins Pass. A few small rock sections keep the trail interesting from a technical standpoint.

Snow has closed the road to wheeled vehicles for the winter season.

Fun Trail. Fairly easy as you drop down to the creek and more challenging as you climb up to Yankee Doodle Lake. Some good obstacles in the Rock Section but no problem if you pick a good line. Ran trail in both directions to avoid traffic and endless bumps on Rollins pass road. Do not recommend taking a stock or large vehicle on this trail.

Stock 2024 Rubicon 4x3, novice driver. Certainly a trail to take slowly as it is quite narrow in places. The Jeep didn't have any size issues but anything much longer or wider may have run into issues. The trail was challenging for me as a beginner and I did scrape the rock rails a few times on the way up. I really like how shaded most of the trail is though and did see some nice looking dispersed campsites on the way up. Rollins Pass road is pretty bumpy and wavy, even at 22psi and was not super enjoyable. Probably won't do this one again but glad I checked it out!

Calvary 4-Wheelers ran this trail on Saturday, August 19 as our “Back to School Special.” I think that was appropriate as the trail definitely took us back to school on how to pick a line. This was the first time I had been on Jenny Creek since it was re-routed. I did miss driving up the creek, but I understand and support maintaining the water quality. I think this was a great compromise to keep the trail open. The trail was harder than I expected with several rocky obstacles on the upper portion. A stock rig can make it through, though, as one of our rigs today was a stock JK, but you must be really good at picking a line. For most of the trip we had nice weather but did get a light shower that cut our lunch stop short and then a brief, heavy shower as we finished the trail. A small group of JL Unlimited Rubicons passed us while we were eating lunch. Other than that, we had the trail to ourselves.

This trail was mostly just chunky loose rock for 90% of the trail. There are some cool camp sites that aren’t too hard to get to (close to either end of the trail). Was definitely harder than a “moderate” trail. Wouldn’t do this one again but glad I check it out.
