East Dix-Elk Lake - Dix Trail

  Roundtrip Distance 12.5 miles
Elevation Gain 1,960 ft.
This peak is trailless, meaning a portion or all of the route up the mountain is via an unmarked trail. For this particular mountain, the typical route is known as a ''herd path'' which is not much more than a worn, but unmarked trail. Some of the herd paths are easy to follow, others are not. In many instances the hiker will travel down a false herd path and eventually have to correct his/her
    course via backtracking. For these particular mountains, it is imperative that the hiker carry a compass (and know how to use it) and topographic map.
