Creek Bottom?

No thats actually the road. We had driven several miles of this, bouncing around in our 4x4's before stopping 2 miles short of the trailhead.

Ugh.

I was just in the Elkhorns yesterday doing some peakbagging and was thinking about doing Red and Ruth next. Now maybe, not so much. If this is the way in....

Re: Ugh.

Yeah this road is not to be taken lightly, I have yet to find a worse quality road anywhere. I am going to approach Ruth from Anthony Lakes, and would probably do Red from its north ridge if I couldnt have driven up the road seen above.

What I am wondering, is if the Elkhorn Trail is open to mountain bikes. The sign at the trailhead did not say bikes were prohibited, biking that trail would be a blast.

Re: Ugh.

The Elkhorn Crest trail? Yeah, if it is not prohibited, that would be a good way to go.

Do you know of a good map for this area? I noticed some trails that were not on Topo while I was there. Would be good to know where all the trails are for some of these.

Re: Ugh.

Yeah, I noticed that also. Best bet would be the Forest Service for a Wallowa Whitman map I think.
