Hike the Grizzly Creek Trail

7.9 Miles Round Trip - 1900 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Grizzly Creek Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Jake Sells

Take a stroll up the Grizzly Creek Canyon from a rest stop directly off I-70 for a quick escape along a tributary to the Colorado River.

Take exit 121 off Interstate 70 (a rest stop exit), and follow signs to a secondary parking lot near Grizzly Creek.

This is a great addition to the nearby Hanging Lake & Spouting Rock hikes just 4 miles East on I-70. Because these two are so popular, Grizzly Creek is a great, not very well known alternative, if you can't make it on the other hikes!

Being an out-and-back route, choose the length of hike you want, and pack a lunch to enjoy at one of the many picnic areas or benches along the trail. During Spring runoff the creek is extremely powerful, so be careful near the banks.
