Ascent Trip Report

From the East Fork Red River trail head I took Trail 56 1 mi. to the sign describing the Great Ditch built from the Red River to Elisabethtown in 1868-9.( a 41 mile canal project including wooden trestles and tunnels built by 400 workers to carry water for hydraulic mining). From there I bushwhacked up until I met up with Trail 55. After crossing a bridge and entering a meadow at just below 10,500 feet I bushwhacked north up the slope of 11202 following a GPS heading. This rugged bushwhack took me up a steep slope and over heavy nests of interlocking fallen trees. On the way down I discovered a much easier route by going down along the ridge a bit east of where I had ascended to a spot about a third of a mile east from where I left the trail on the way up. I followed trail 55 down to the intersection with 56. This avoids most of the bushwhack but adds more than a mile. The most direct route up would be to bushwhack up the south side of the stream you cross 0.45mi. from the trailhead until you intersect Trail 55.
