This is a high elevation trail (approximately 7,080 feet) that leads to Whitewater Creek.

The trail follows Deloche Canyon and then tops out on the ridge overlooking Whitewater Creek. The trail then descends down into creek. Ponderosa and Douglas Fir are abundant near the canyon bottom. Travel along Trail 207 for 1/2 mile and continue the 179 trial to Spider Saddle. Pockets of aspen and dense mixed conifer line the trail.

Good camping sites at confluence of trail 179 and 207. The trail down to Whitewater Creek is on south-facing slope and can be very hot especially in the afternoon. Winn Canyon climbs abruptly with numerous switchbacks to Spider Saddle.

Whitewater Creek is perennial at this elevation. Water quality is not tested; therefore, it cannot be guaranteed to be drinkable. No cell phone coverage in this area. The trail down to Whitewater Creek is on south-facing slope and can be very hot especially in the afternoon.
