Trail Information


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.

There's still a giant snow drift right on the last climb right at Yankee doodle lake. There are tracks coming down it, but it's impassable going towards the lake.

The trail is open all the way up to Yankee Doodle Lake but there is a large snow bank that will prevent you from getting past unless you have a SxS or 4wheeler. Don’t forget that the trail between waypoint 1 and 2 is very narrow with no place to turn around or let others pass you. I had to back out due to another driver trying to come back out with a small teardrop camper. I’m guessing that driver ran into that snow bank and was forced to turn around. I advise avoiding this trail until that bank had cleared.

Trail can't even be reached at this point. I wouldn't venture down it with snow across it anyway.

Ran this during a light snowstorm, one of the first of the season - it was gorgeous! First time running it since the reroute, definitely watch out for sneaky stumps in the Fallen Forest. No accumulation yet, but I wouldn't wait much longer to run it this year! Rating this "harder" than a 3. There's probably not any obstacle that warrants it, but if a novice driver ran this trail in a stock truck the potential for panel damage is very real between waypoints 7 and 10. I assisted in getting a Rzr with transmission failure off the trail, there was some winching involved getting both vehicles over Flex Rock. (Good to meet you Brandon and Zoe!)

This was a nice trail, and I ran it North to South since I drove up Rollins to start. Not overly challenging but definitely take it slow and have careful tire placement in a stock or close to stock rig between waypoints 7-10. I was a little careless and took some damage to my rear bumper.
