Hiking Rock Creek Sno-Park

Rock Creek Sno Park is one of many Sno Parks in the Chinook Pass corridor. Rock Creek features miles of groomed trails  that connect the Lower Rock Creek to Upper Rock Creek and offer further exploration in this area. Visitors here can connect to Milk Creek and Spring Creek Sno-parks. 

Cross country skiers or snowshoers can enjoy the miles of trail here thanks to the moderate grade. Be aware that this is a motorized sno-park, so you will likely have snowmobiles for company at times. In winter, a Sno-park permit is required. Between April 1 and 30, depending on snow, a Sno-park permit may or may not be required.

There is a sani can at Gold Creek Station just up Highway 410 from the turnoff to Lower Rock Creek trailhead.
