You have several options. One would be to stay in the wash all the way to RMD. I can't say for sure but believe that there is no bridge where the road crosses the wash so would be no problem to get on the road. You could stay in the wash for a ways further as the wash parallels the road for a while. I have not done this but looking at the map there doesn't appear to be any issues.Another option would be go down Blue Creek for a mile or so and cross the low ridge to your left (south) and drop into the drainage that goes east of Goat Mountain. Then before the junction with the Smoky Creek trail take the old Mule Ears trail back to the where you can pick up the actual ME trail. There is one pouroff to be negotiated below Goat Mountain at Mesa Bonito Spring.Mule Ears will probably speak up but he went from RMD around the east side of Trap Mountain to Trap Spring. You could then pick up the ME trail. This could be done in conjuncton with coming all the way down Blue Creek to the road.
