East Big Creek is an unofficial trail in the Grand Mesa National Forest near Grand Junction, Colorado. The trail begins off of Forest Road #114 where it travels up the East Big Creek drainage in the direction of Leon Peak (11,226 feet). The trail can be combined with a nearby snowmobile route to create a loop or to explore the forest in other directions other than along the creek itself.
