TIP: The trickest part of this trail comes just before crossing under the power line. Here is the tip----when you come out of the timber to a road, zig left and then right. On the second zig go twice the distance to pick up the trail on the left side going through the war zone created by the power lines. Look for rock carins and tape when making the zigs. Also keep an eye out for Red Lake itself as the junction off the main trail is poorly marked.
