Red Pine Fork is filled with big descents that require stamina, bravery, and mountaineering skill. But despite the imposing mountains above Red Pine Lake, there are in fact intermediate routes in the lower canyon, like the Red Pine Trees, where touring parties can find powder stashes and enjoy a mellow day. This is a pleasant, low-angle tour that mostly follows the summer trail up Red Pine Fork before veering off to the Red Pine–Maybird Divide, where a makeshift log shelter (assuming it’s still there) provides an ideal spot to picnic before skiing or snowboarding down.
