This trail is lightly used during most of the season. During hunting season the usage is greatly increased. Suitable camping areas can be found along the trail. When the top is reached, some beautiful views of the surrounding area may be enjoyed. North Rock Creek Trail leaves Rock Creek Road just past the entrance of Rock Creek Campground. A closed road passes through Camp Val Verde. The road turns into a jeep road for about 1/4 mile, then the actual trail begins.
The trail proceeds northeast to the north fork of Rock Creek, then turns to the west and follows the north fork of Rock Creek to to the Dry Creek Stock Driveway. Dry Creek Stock Driveway provides access to other trails, including the South Rock Creek Trail (Forest Development Trail 702) and Silver Mountain (Forest Trail 704).
Directions from Monte Vista: Travel south from Monte Vista on Highway 15 (Gunbarrel Road), for 2 miles. Turn west on Rock Creek Road, (County Road 2), and drive 14 miles to the trailhead.
