Todd W. on Red Mountain Trail
The hike in to Snow Canyon is easy to moderate - a lot of natural rock stairs at parts. Worth the hike to get such great views of Snow Canyon, though. And good views of the Pine Valley mountains on the way back to the trailhead.
It was beautiful and fun. I would consider this more of a nature trek than a hike as far as difficulty. We actually started on the Lava Tube trail then proceeded to do a walk about via three or four others for a three hour tour. I recommend this for the views!
