Creede Colorado need advice

Hey guys its my first trip to Colorado and I am so excited I cant stand it. I am headed to Creede from Alabama in July with the family and we are staying at MoutainviewRv park. Needless to say I am bringing by bike and brother is bringing he razor. If someone doesn't mind talking to me about riding opportunities in the area - that would be great.

Thanks

Creede Area

Great scenic riding in the Creede area.
Main loops are the Willow Creeks thru North Creede around to Bachelor and back to town.
Heading west to Lake City, paved curvy road. Turn off to Bristol Head area, or Spring Creek Pass turn off for loop thru FS land. Check out Clear Creek Falls. At Freemans Ranch is best burger & ice cream around. Just up from there is road to Stoney Pass and over to the Animas River area, then onto Engineer or Cinnamon Pass, Lake City.
East of Creede at Wagon Wheel Gap is Pool Table Road, Wheeler Geologic Area and as much FS road as you have gas for.
Get out the map and check it all out.

The Rat Creek route is also a nice ride that will tie the Bachelor Loop together...a little rougher but nothing even close to death defying.

Also, no OHV on pavement or in town. CSP up there a lot in the summer.

Thank you guys. This will give me a starting point to map out a few good loops.

And it is scenic and fun going over to Lake City as well. About three routes to get over there from highway, FS road, and ATV trail. But the Razor might have to stay behind.
