Texas Creek Recreation Area is a popular high-use area for motorized OHV recreation visitors. Texas Creek has around 45 miles of marked trails that range from easy 4x4 roads to narrow and rocky ATV trails with sharp switchbacks. Located west of Canon City, the area is often rideable year round because it doesn't get much snow, and the snow it does get usually melts quickly. There are some mines and prospects to look at, and views from the higher hills reveal scenic views of the Sangre de Cristo Range. At lower elevations the trails wind through a mix of various scrub, juniper and pinon pine trees. As you continue to climb in elevation, the vegetation changes to mostly spruce, aspen, and Douglas- fir trees. Mule deer, bighorn sheep and elk can sometimes be seen in this area. Dispersed camping is available near the trailhead. For more information, please contact the Royal Gorge Field Office.
