A nice loop that takes you onto one of the less traveled trails. But watch out, there are other trails branching off not shown on this map. We took a wrong turn because of it.

Great trail to take the kids on. Lots of loose rock and gravel. Took hiking shoes but probably could have just used tennis shoes. It was muddy but we expected it due to rain the previous day. Stopped at Remy’s dog park on the way out for some off leash time.

Very easy trail to check out some of the mines at the park. Went a week ago and there were a few muddy spots but otherwise it was a nice trail

Hubby and I visited this place a few weeks ago. The location is strange, we thought or gps was wrong because the parking lot is in an industrial park. It's also called Red Mountain Park. The history that goes with this site is very interesting (iron ore mine's, late 1800's). They are in the process of many upgrades but the ziplines we're in order and watched a few folks having fun. The trails were fun, hubby and I are middle age our of shape so we broke a sweat on this trail. Several others totaling 13 miles. Paths were clear and marked. Some rugged terrain. Can't wait to go back and yet the other trails! ! Definitely worthy checking out more than once.
