Located just above the historic Camp Hale in the White River National Forest, Pearl Creek is a fantastic place to pitch camp whether you are spending the week or just the weekend in the area exploring all of the nearby trails. The road offers plenty of dispersed camping options whether you are in a ground tent or a 5th wheel camper. This off-road trail follows the Pearl Creek drainage across an easy 4.3 miles to an access point for the Jackal Hut, one of the many 10th Mountain Division Huts in the area. This is a dead-end road not widely used, so you are offered great seclusion from the crowds on other nearby routes. The trail also rewards you with spectacular views of the mountain peaks to the west, including Holy Cross Ridge and Mount of the Holy Cross.
