Texas Creek, CO: As Good As It Gets ?
Posted April 09, 2003 - 01:42 PM
We are looking for somewhere Saturday to ride <2 hours from Denver that a.) is not Pueblo, b.) has less than 1 foot of snow (Rampart) and, c.) doesn't go in circles (Watkins, Thunder Alley, Johnston).
We thought about Texas Creek but never been there. Is it worth the trip, or is it just Pueblo with trees ? Any comments ?

Get your OHV sticker NOW!!!! You can do it on the internet, or at the local dealer. Both give you temps to carry, which you should. Saves you 50 bones and may not be able to ride depending on the officer.....It may just be a nasty rumor, but I hear the OHV stickers are increasing in price next year, so the 15.25 seems like a good deal, and if you got them and have to use Search and Rescue in CO, you won't have to pay (they can bill you for time and equipment if you don't have hunting/fishing license or OHV tags..
Ride like hell, my bikes are in Cali on the pier today....

There's a new trail up Reese Gulch beyond Tucker Trail to the right that connects to Texas Gulch. Traction was an on/off issue there as the last 10 minutes of riding that trail slammed my WR450 into a scrub pine and twisted the forks. Nobody saw me do it so I can make up a good story. The real reason was middle-age fatigue
Ranger precense was high since there were some ATV guys packing heat and firing off rounds.
When I go there again I'm disappearing into the expert areas to avoid the general crowd. We went as far north as we could (Long Gulch) and I could see Highway 9 off in the distance. Is it possible to reach that road and find some more trails ?
