The Rolling Creek Trailhead provides access to the Colorado Trail and the popular Rolling Creek Trail, which heads south into the northeast side of the Lost Creek Wilderness Area. The first third of the trail south from the trailhead is an easy, pleasant hike following gently rolling terrain. However, the second two thirds of the trail are quite steep and the trail up the tight canyon on the north side is often blocked by downed trees. The trail passes around to the west of the Castle and offers some very dramatic views of this prominent pinnacle. This trail, in conjunction with the Colorado Trail, Wigwam Trail, and Goose Creek Trail, offer some interesting loops for backpack trips. The gentle first section of the trail, up to the Wilderness boundary, is popular with mountain bikers, but the rest of the trail is entirely in designated wilderness. In Wilderness, mountain bikes are prohibited and Wilderness regulations apply.
