Great trail that offers many trails for biking, running and hiking. Most of these trails are well maintained. If you're looking for a more challenging trail try Smythe Trail (Red Line).
Fairly easy but a lot to see and multiple trails along with treehouses! Beautiful scenery!
Been hiking this park multiple times. Nothing but fun in every possible way. Discovered a trail new to my dad and I that starts at a 4 way trail intersection with trails leading: back to the area where the first map holding kiosk is positioned, in the direction that I believe leads to a mine area, a wide couple yard long path created by a crane used to lift a crusher off of it's 4 columned initial display area, and the discontinued gravel trail leading to a short strip of asphalt that turns into a natural trail. So excited to finally hike the last portion of that trail.
Love Red Mountain! Great dog park with a separate area for shy, old, or injured dogs! Lots of great trails that range from easy-difficult depending on skill level. Love all the mines in the area.
Great place. Lots of trails from flat and easy to undulating and moderate. I have seen raccoon kits, owl, king snakes among others. A few overlooks and lots of foliage.
Wonderful place. Surprise at mine #14, a vent hole from the mine blows out cold air!!
