Redstone Trail #206 Professional Reviews and Guides
"This route is the only access into upper Whitewater Creek following major ?re and ?ood events. These remote reaches of Whitewater are beautiful with towering rock formations and pleasant campsites in a ponderosa pine park along the creek. This isn’t the straightest route to Whitewater Creek, but it is the only way remaining after the monumental fire and floods of 2012 and 2013. The steep sections are at the beginning (470-foot climb in 0.5 mile) and the end (700-foot descent via switchbacks in 0.5 mile)."
