The red part of the trail is rough. There were parts that I didn’t think I could climb, and was kind of scared to frankly. In those parts the best thing to do is to look for easier ways to get around the rocks, which there usually are a few. I saw many people with dogs and small children hiking along this trail and I felt sorry for the poor things. I know some parts are not that possible for small children or dogs to climb, so if you plan on walking the whole red trail- go alone.
That being said the view is phenomenal at its best point. It’s totally worth it to walk the first part of the red trail. I know I would do it again.
The white trail was a joyride compared to the first part, and was a much more enjoyable time. A soft breeze blew as I climbed higher on the large mountain, and you’re able to see the river from a new perspective.
Overall I had a great time on the whole trail and plan to return soon. Have a great hike! :)
