Sterling Mine Ditch - Bear Gulch to Little Applegate 1-16-19

Photos by Dan, Francie and Keeley

Eleven of us headed out under stormy skies to be outdoors and hike a part of the Sterling Mine Ditch Trail.  We drove the longer route to reach the trailhead, since last year our much shorter route took us through some very rough roads, full of big potholes. 

The weather gods were on our side again today, with no rain and nice hiking temperatures (mostly in the mid 40’s).  Four adventuresome hikers decided to hike through the tunnel this time. 

After a long segment in the morning, we had lunch on our favorite log.  At some point it looked like the storm might actually catch up with us, so we headed down to the shuttle cars.  However we made it to the cars and almost back to Ashland before the rains began. 

Refreshments were taken at Caldera Brewery.  We all are hoping for some good snow coverage in the mountains for next week’s snowshoes.
