North Fork Catherine Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"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."

"A backpacking and stock trail winds through the Catherine Creek meadows along the North Fork of 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. After crossing the North Fork Catherine Creek, the trail crosses one more stream, Chop Creek, before reaching the Eagle Cap Wilderness boundary (5,090 ft.) at 2 miles. Just past the wilderness boundary the trail crosses Jim Creek. Three hundred yards past the wilderness boundary there is a meadow between the trail and the North Fork Catherine Creek. There are several campsites along the creek here, with paths leading down to them from the trail."
