essay bro

After a strong mile up East Fork Trail #56 you will need to veer to the right and follow the old abandon ditch south for a half-mile.  When the ditch reaches the East Fork Red River hike up stream another half-mile to the roaring whitewater of the “East Fork Gorge.”

 

Sawmill Creek Falls is just above the old abandon gold miner’s ditch up Sawmill Creek.
