Route : Rocky Canyon.

Finding the trail: Rocky Canyon is the first water course on Hwy 50 heading north just after passing the last of the houses of Strawberry. It is not marked. Trail starts about 200 yards past the water course and it cannot be seen from the Hwy. Climb up on the slope look for it. Its a small trail but distinct and easy to follow once you're on it.

Crossing the canyon at ~ 7200 feet looked fairly treacherous due to the large volume of meltwater this season. We found a dead tree across the creek about 500 yards upstream of what may be the usual crossing point, and we were able to make a safe crossing.

Once across, there was snow cover almost all of the way up. Snow was fairly soft, but we made good speed without snowshoes.

Ski descent was on slushy snow, and we returned by the same route.
