"From the parking lot, walk west on the old mining road before reaching the wilderness boundary. The trail maintains a steady, gradual route up the Rock Creek valley, crossing the Gore Range Trail within the first 0.5 mile. (Several backpacking destinations are available on this trail.)" Read more

"North Rock Creek lies in a little-used area in the Eagles Nest Wilderness east of Keller Mountain and north of Silverthorne off of Colorado 9. The route begins on a wide road and then continues on a trail to an abandoned cinder-block cabin ruin at the far edge of a vast, flat meadow. Start south up the road, which rises and falls as it curls up the valley through evergreen forest for 1.4 miles to the summer Rock Creek Trailhead and parking area. On your way to this trailhead, avoid any side trails on the left and remain on the main wide road. North Rock Creek will always be on your left. At the Rock Creek Trailhead sign, keep to the left and quickly ascend the trail past a register, a signboard, and a sign indicating that you are entering the Alfred M. Bailey Bird Nesting Area."
