The Ryman Creek Trail generally follows the Ryman Creek drainage; however, one fork of the trail climbs and follows a steep ridge line and then joins the Divide road 564. The trail passes through stands of spruce, fir, aspen, and Ponderosa pine. There are views of Ryman Creek drainage. The other fork follows the Ryman creek bottom. The trail passes through spruce-fir stands that are interspersed with open meadows.
This trail is lightly used and provides an opportunity for solitude. Trout fishing is available in Ryman Creek. The trail is in primitive condition and is open to the use of motorcycles.
