    Default Jenny Creek & Rollins Pass East 10/17/2020



    Thread starter....we ran part way up Rollins Pass east, took the right fork onto Jenny creek, then climbed up jenny Creek to the junction back with Rollins Pass east near Eye of the Needle lake. Then drove up to the end of Rollins Pass east and walked out to the tunnel. Came back all the way down Rollins Pass east....A few pics:

    Crossing Jenny creek:


    Heading up Jenny Creek - need some firewood?


    There was a bit of a rocky climb getting up out of Jenny Creek - kind of like Penn Gulch...


    Junction of jenny creek with Rollins Pass east....

    Tunnel from near Jenny Lake


    End of the road - that is kingston peak in the background left skyline:


    Smoke from the cameron peak fire....maybe the south 'thumb' area that was causing evacuations in the Big Thompson canyon area


    Heading down - I like driving through the old RR rock cuts:

    Had a good time today. I only took photos of the landscape from the Needle's Eye Tunnel. My wife drove about half of Jenny Creek. This proved to be a good moderate section to help grow her confidence off road.

    were there road closure blockades up when you went? I tried this like two weeks ago and it said closed 8 miles in.

    It was open all the way to the normal permanent closure just before the needles eye tunnel.

    Tom ran into a similar roadblock a couple of weeks ago just up the road from there on West Magnolia. I guess they were doing work that required it? I havent run Jenny Creek since it was rerouted out of the actual creek, maybe the signs referred to that?
