The Red Hill Recreation Area is a series of short trails that lead to the Mushroom Rock overlook. A great hike and a great view of the Crystal and Roaring Fork Valleys.

Great Hike - lots of options. Someone said this was insta worthy and they were right! And it was the perfect swap for hanging lake; where we unfortunately were turned away by rangers due to the lot being full.
