 From Silverceek TH   

Took the Silvercreek trail up Redcloud first, then traversed over to Sunshine, then descended into the South Fork Basin via Roachs Route.

I would definitely recommend avoiding doing an ascent up the South Fork Basin for either Mtn. The trails are steep, rotten, and dangerous. Our descent was difficult enough.

Other than that it was a wonderful hike. The weather was prefect, the mountains werent too busy, and the aspen trees were in full fall color.

Great trip.
