Park is well maintained. Abandoned Mines are interesting. A little too crowded people wise for me but nice easy trails.

As with all trails at this park, well maintained and marked. This trail takes you past a couple of the old mines and provides plenty to enjoy.

Love this trail. All the trails at Red Mtn Park are well marked and maintained. It’s mostly flat and has lots of cutoffs back to the start so I love using it to test new gear. This time of year (Mid-December) there are no leaves so the views are awesome pretty much the whole time. Highly recommend any combo of trails at this park.

Some easy and flat trails, and some that are more of a “hike”. Good variety for running,walking or hiking. Very shady too!

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.

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).

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.
