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!

Snow has made the trail impassable to most vehicles.

The beginning of the trail was rally crowded with campers occupying nearly all available campsites, with many parking their vehicles on the actual trail itself. That being said, there is enough room to drive around the cars left on the trail. The crowd thins out and the trail narrows as you ascend it. It’s also rockier the higher you go. Overall, I find this trail to be bland and nothing really worth going out of your way for, unless camping close to other people is on your agenda. There aren’t any epic campsites with spectacular views but there are plenty of camping spots.

Lots of rain have made the larger rocks more exposed than the pics show. Had lots of fun while camping along the creek and getting my gladiator rubicon onto some rocks. Never needed 4 low, but high clearance is a must due to the higher rocks you can’t avoid. No snow left on the trail. AMAZING camping next to the creek. Sad there was not cooler views at the end.

What a gem! Camped here with my buddies over the weekend and had a blast. The creek is strong and the forest is lush. The trail is not too difficult at first, but gets slightly harder as it progresses.

Ran this trail today, it was extremely pretty, will be adding this to my regular visits. Did not go to the end, turned around around the 4th waypoint when it started to hail. Many really good spots to camp or picnic.
