Wearyman Creek

Vail Pass

Located off of Turkey Creek Road near the Red Cliff, Colorado access point; Wearyman Creek Road can be a challenge to novice snowmobile and timbersled riders and RZR drivers. 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.
