Highlight: Deep Creek Road (Aspen Alley)
Deep Creek Road is the main north/south access along the western side of the Sierra Madre range in the Medicine Bow National Forest, providing connections to many back roads and 4WD trails. The abundance of camping opportunities makes it a great place to set up a base from which to explore the dozens of trails in the surrounding area. Deep Creek Road also offers plenty of scenic beauty. It features Aspen Alley, a third of a mile long, one-lane section of road between very tall, mature aspen trees. In fact, there are several groves of tall, mature aspen, making this an outstanding venue for viewing changing colors in the fall. Wildflowers are abundant in the spring, and summer features the beauty of the aspen, pine, and fir forest. Though technically open in the winter, the road receives no winter maintenance and becomes impassable. However, the area is very popular for snowmobiles. This area is a little too remote for day trips but is an excellent choice for a weekend or week-long adventure.
