Gore Creek Trail is in the southern Gore Range, part of the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. state of Colorado. It is located in the Eagles Nest Wilderness, Holy Cross Ranger District, White River National Forest, Summit County. Gore Creek Trail is north of Interstate 70 in Vail.

The trail is moderately difficult with an elevation gain from 8,680 feet to 11,400 feet at Gore Lake. After five miles of climbing, the Gore Creek Trail offers a choice of a steep climb up to Gore Lake, to the north, or to the winding switchbacks of Red Buffalo Pass, to the east, where it joins more than forty-five miles of the Gore Range Trail.
