Trail Information

Highlights

Rock Creek is a short OHV trail that runs north to south just outside of Allenspark, CO. This off-road route is accessible primarily during the summer months, typically July to November. The highlights of Rock Creek are, by far, the lush creekside drive, beautiful dense forest and a few small obstacles that keep things technically interesting. This is a great place for creekside camping tucked in the trees. Keep an eye out for wild raspberries!

Rocky, steep and slow without many technical spots or views. End of the trail is very disappointing not my style of off-road trail. I am a pretty slow off roader but couldn’t imagine many people making it in an hour, took me two. Only reason I’m still giving three stars is for the nice creak side camping spots in the beginning of the trail.

What a great trail! Went out wheeling with my folks and the first one we tried was a little scarier than my mom could handle so we came over to Rock Creek. A great trail for people who are new to wheeling and want to build up some skill.

Snow packed and icy throughout the entire trail. Although open, the terrain makes this trail very difficult to run in the snow. It is extremely popular and busy with cross country skiers, Best to leave this trail to them for the winter. It's just not a worthy winter wheeling spot.
