Appropriately named; plenty of deep, bright red sand to enjoy! I've only completed this trail from east to west; using the Grapevine Trail to connect in and then the Millcreek Trail to exit back out for a total of 6 miles.
Beautiful lookout once on top of the hill; a nice 360 view. The west end of the trail is hard to follow mostly because sand can't be hardpacked and well-worn so its easy to loose among the sagebrush. I've lost trail several times, even after knowing my way down. The key is to look for the next white trail marker sticking up and make your way to it.

An excellent place to see unique wildflowers in the spring!!
