Description

Creek Side connects Skill Saw (Lower Creek Side) to Next Jen. It's a steep climb up, or a fast and straightforward descent. At the bottom this trail there is a BLM Campground, and nearby is the bottom of the descending only Skull Bucket Trail. Many will climb this trail to create a loop with Next Jen to then descend back down Skull Bucket Trail.

The uppermost 1/2 mile of the trail was closed in 2018 due to private property issues. The trail as shown on MTBproject is all on BLM land.
