Rock Creek Trailhead
Added by TravelingMatt

Location:  Gore Range
Directions:  From I-70 exit 205, head north on Highway 9 through the town of Silverthorne. Rock Creek Road will be on the left, some 8 miles north of the interchange. This is Summit County road 1350. At first it is a good dirt road. After about 1 miles of driving on 1350, turn left where multiple signs indicate the Rock Creek trail. This road is rougher, and continues for about 2 miles to the trailhead. (Note: Distances not precise.)
Winter Access:  Unknown

2015-07-28 the road was in good shape, a few decent ruts that would require some clearance, but anything with awd/4wd should be fine...good clearance 2wd should be ok too, only 1 steepish hill to negotiate and its short. there was a mini at the trailhead. SolarAlex         
2015-05-05 Gate is locked at the winter closure. Road to Lower Cataract Lake is open. planet54         
2013-10-12 Clear to TH. Bumpy with many deep holes. 4WD with some clearance necessary. Keller Mountain had lots of snow on it (hip deep in some spots on my 5‘ 4" frame). goingup         
2013-01-05 TH is closed at winter location, about 1.5 miles down from summer time trail head. The Rock Creek Rd from Hwy 9 is steep, slick, snowpacked, and has 0 grains of sand on it. Proceed with caution! From winter closure, the road to summer time TH is packed from skiers and snowshoers. It can be booted. d_baker         
2012-09-08 After an easy start, the last mile+ gets to be a rough ride - not bottoming out rough, though. I got my low-clearance 2wd to the trailhead without much problem. CarpeDM    2      
2012-06-16 Road is cleared of downed trees and no snow all the way to the trailhead. There are a couple very rough sections, I would not plan on getting a 2wd car all the way to the end. A couple Subarus and a Honda CRV made it, everyone else parked at the TH had 4WD high clearance. Steve Knapp         
2010-07-12 This TH can be used to access Keller Mountain and the Grand Traverse. The road after making the left turn is rather rough, but there were 2wd cars at the trailhead. TravelingMatt
