Wearyman Creek: Avoid at all cost

Wearyman Creek is a public access road that is off limits to rentals. Due to the fact that is a creek bed which filters into the drinking supply of both Red Cliff and Minturn, the road should in fact be closed to all forms of motorized and non-motorized travel. Wearyman creek is made up of challenging climbs and due to the wear and tear on the environment and nearby streams. If you are renting from us in the spring or summer, just know that this trail is off limits to rental vehicles.


Wearyman Creek Road is located off of Turkey Creek Road near the Red Cliff, Colorado access point. In the Spring and throughout the summer, the climb up Wearyman Creek is rocky, tight and often times covered in water due to the nearby creeks overflowing. Wearyman takes the riders up to the Wilder Gulch Road and Resolution Creek Road connections/Trail Heads. Only about half of the road up gives snowmobile riders access to the Vail Pass Recreation area powder fields - for the majority of the stretch, the winter travelers need to stay on the road. For the winter snowmobile and timbersled riders, it is worth noting that Wearyman Creek Road is not maintained/groomed in the winter months and is classified as "most difficult" by the U.S. Forest Service Trail System.
