This was a nice hike. However it’s straight down and straight up. Was very difficult for my young ones,not a great idea for young beginners. Mind you my kids are 3 and 5. Hope this was helpful

This was a overall nice hike down to the river. However this is not an easy hike. Hiking in is ALL downhilll and obviously back is ALL up hill and is decently steep. Brings lots of water and take breaks!

EASY!!!!! Hahaha I guess if climbing Mount Shasta is easy this is. Super steep and rocky so its hard on the ankles. It pretty but it is far from easy.

Naw, not easy. Steep up and down. Beautiful wildflowers and a well groomed trail.

This is a pretty steep trail. It’s not too long though. Great view of the river. Really nice to lay on the rocks next to the water.

I love this trail! I try to see how quickly I can get to the river and back. Usually it's about 45 min although I made it in 38 min one time.

UPPER Red Shack Trail is to the left from the parking lot as you approach the main trailhead. It looks like an old road and appears to ascend... if you head up this you will be on a 1.8 mile out and back trail that mostly runs along a ridgeline before a gentle 200ft descent to an overlook that provides a view of where the LOWER Red Shack Trail ends... Oh... AND there's an old abandoned gold mine shaft. For aesthetics only! Please do NOT enter!!!

Really cool trail, a great workout coming back up from the river! Good way to get in shape for hiking if you make this a regular habit.
