A wonderful park with well marked and maintained trails. Neat little attractions such as the Tree House and Grace’s Gap are scattered throughout and the views are amazing. There are many historical artifacts in the park and some signage denoting the history. If you become a member you can take a guided history tour where you’ll hear numerous interesting stories from a local historian. I haven’t done the zip line adventure but know many who have that thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is my go to spot in the city for trail running! Plenty of elevation gain with amazing wooded single tracks throughout the park!

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.
