If you love hiking, Gore Creek is a great choice for you. There are three trailheads just a short walk from Gore Creek: the 5.48-mile Gore Creek Trail, the 9.0-mile Deluge Creek Trail, and the 11-mile Two Elk Trail. These steep trails all take you through the beautiful Eagles Nest Wilderness, and they provide great views of the surrounding area. As you’re walking, you may get to see some of White River National Forest’s native wildlife, including elk, mule deer, pika, and bighorn sheep.
Gore Creek is also very popular with fly-fishermen. The creek is home to a wide variety of freshwater fish, including brown, rainbow, and cutthroat trout. If you catch a few fish, you can grill them up on your campsite’s personal charcoal grill. Campsites also come with campfire rings, picnic tables, and bear-proof food lockers. There’s no drinking water available at Gore Creek, though, so be sure to bring plenty with you.
