There are a few ways to string together Rock Creek area trails to make a nice day of riding. Anyway you do it though, be prepared for some grinding up fairly steep at times but relatively smooth singletrack. Your efforts will be well rewarded with big views of Glacier Peaks once you get to the top and fast and flowly descent that follows.

Rock Creek trail system is included in the proposed Wenatchee and Okanogan Roadless Areas, which, if passed, could pave a way to becoming Wilderness Area and could permanently lock out mountain bikes from this area. If you ride here, please make sure to sign in at the trailhead sign-in post to let Forest Service know that mountain cyclists value this trail system!!
