Squirrel Creek is a 4.2 mile out and back trail located near Rye, CO. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking and mountain biking.
Great trail with many connecting trails. You could spend the entire day hiking in this area. The trees are turning which makes the hike even more beautiful.
Beautiful from any angle. Camping right next to the creek east to wake up and go.
We connected from the Pueblo Mountain Park trail system and went a couple miles up Squirrel creek trail. The creek was flowing and we went through 7 or 8 crossings that were 6" up to 1.5' deep before running out of time and turning back. We saw no one else on teh trail and it has a nice flow to it for the first east portion that we did. Will be back to do the complete hike.
