Rock Creek OHV, Mace Mill Road, Balderson Road, Eldorado National Forest
Last Known Status
The main staging area here is primitive, with just a vault toilet and an information kiosk with a box of maps (often empty) but the narrow trails are very well maintained and offer some cool bridges and winding brush tunnels. Although the area has some great trails, it is heavily managed and has some unpredictable closure periods so always call before you haul.
