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.

Can't access trail due to impassable snow on Rollins.

I know this trail hasn't been updated to match the new system, but the "3" rating is way too low. This is easily a 5 rating. Lots of large boulders to navigate/drive over after crossing the creek and navigating through the dead-fall area. Anyone entering this trail thinking it's an easy drive is going to be in for a rude awakening. There aren't any "optional" routes or bypasses. That said, if you go in knowing it's a 5, you'll enjoy it.

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.
