4.5: Red Mountain Trail itself is nice, but getting the right trailhead from Ruxton to get on Intemann and to that one is confusing and a bit frustrating.

Nice hike with a decent incline. I would say it’s easy to moderate, given the steepness of the trail. Beautiful views of Manitou and Garden of the Gods. We hiked it on a Saturday and only came across two other hikers. Very relaxed compared to some of the more popular spots near Colorado Springs.

Parking was pretty well nonexistent near the trailhead. We parked on the road leading to the trailhead but I’m not really sure if we were allowed to.

We had a blast. Such a beautiful hike. Loved the view at the top. It is worth it

Very peaceful hike and didn't see another person on the trail. Beautiful views of Pikes Peak, the Incline, Manitou Springs and Garden of the Gods. Did experience one spot where the trail takes a sharp left at a big rock but i accidentally went right into a slippery area that was broad and confusing. Thankfully this app could show how I was off the trail.
