Georgetown (Rock Creek) is located in the Georgetown Ranger District of the Eldorado National Forest. The area supports many types of riding from narrow trails to logging roads accessable to jeeps and even autos. Riders can be from beginners to seasoned riding veterans. The Mace Mill staging area is recommended for the more advanced rider because the access out may be a challenge for the beginner. 5 Corners Staging Area further to the SE is recommened for the first few rides if you are a beginner.

Vegitation in the area is predominately mixed pine forest with some areas of dense brush. Rainfall varies between 50 and 60 inches per year with the wettest season occuring generally between October and April. It is not unusual to find closures of roads and trails during these wet periods.
