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.

One of my favorites! Can do steep uphills to mild depending on how you feel. Lots of trails to choose from. Beautiful view of Mt Sopris.
