We planned a day of wandering around and exploring in the area southeast of Jefferson, so we didn't know what to expect. The weather was perfect, with cooler temperatures and sunny skies. We found the trailhead easily enough, and we didn't need to go far before we found a wide spot on the dirt road to air down.
We cut the trail in half by doing the network that is the Rock Creek Hills trail, and then we went back up to that trail's start to get back on to Lost Park Road. Then we ran the rest of the trail all in one shot all the way to Mud Hill.
We had done parts of Rock Creek Hills Road while we were wandering around, but it was good to see it all in one piece. It was a mellow drive, and there were lots of people camping. It was a great place to use a bigger trailer, and people were enjoying that as we could tell. We saw a few people shooting, but it seemed that most campers were just hanging out. Everyone was very friendly and we waved as we passed.
Even though it's a long trail it doesn't take long to get from one end to the other. We soon found our way to county road 77 and we turned to do the Bordenville Gulches trail. We'll definitely take the Jefferson Cutoff again when we're in the area.
