A backpacking and stock trail goes along the North Fork Catherine Creek from North Fork Catherine Creek Trailhead to the pass where Trail 1905 becomes Rock Creek Trail. The junction with Meadow Mountain Trail is also at this pass. From the trailhead, the trail heads north-northeast up the west side of the North Fork Catherine Creek. It crosses six small to very small streams in the fi rst 1.25 miles. At 1.25 miles (4,690 ft.) the trail crosses the North Fork Catherine Creek. The forest along this creek bottom is a mix of ponderosa pine, spruce, and cottonwood. There are also some open areas and some brush.
