Last summer I went back for a second hike of Ford and was disappointed that other people had added to the flagged route. In fact they had gone off the wrong direction to the left, leading me further into the gulley. Since I'd found the goat trail on my previous trip, it was possible to correct course, find it, and make my way up.


On the way down I followed the trail past where it joins the flagging. To my surprise there were sawn logs, a distinct trail bed and a clear path all the way down to the main trail. It was somewhat amusing to re-join the Dewdney trail less than 100 feet from the not so marvelous flagged route. I can't believe you went straight down that hellish gulley. At least something like that makes you appreciate trails all the more.
