Spent a few night exploring the Pecos Wilderness via Jack's Creek. Great overnight spot to use as a "home base" with lots of trail access. Multiple units of corrals and plenty of parking and turnaround space for large trailers. Would be a nice area for group trail exploration. Nice bathrooms there at the camp, and a beautiful view of the mountains. We explored Cave Creek Trail in one direction as well as rode up to Round Mountain in the other direction. Round Mountain offers superb views and a nice trail through the aspens. Highly recommend and will be back!
