Deep woods and easy 7 mile one way hike to bridge across river.
Follows the East Fork of the Red River from trail head. Ditch Cabin is right at trail head. Good was to do a 360 from Trail Head to bridge, then up to Lost Lake/Horseshoe Lake Trail junction. Left on trail to Horseshoe then up to Wheeler Peak. You can then return to junction and continue to Lost Lake, Middle Fork Lake and back to East Fork trail head. A full day or make it an overnight with camping at Horseshoe Lake area. Lovely in Fall with the Aspens turning.
