Spectacular!!! This trail is rocky and rooty singletrack, with many, many talus slopes to maneuver. They can get old after a while, but... The scenery in Rock Creek Canyon is simply amazing. It is highly recommended that you ride the forst roads up (FR111 to FR101) to the upper trailhead or shuttle to the top. Although Rock Creek trail is a 12-mile decent, the rocks, roots, and riding on the edge keep you from flying through this trail. Bring a camera. I rode FR 129 to FR111 to FR101 and then decended the trail - almost 28 miles total. Epic if you climb to the top without gasoline! If you're in the Medicine Bow National Forest, do not miss this trail!!
