I just love this place which Is close to where I live and is an easy go to for me! Easy trails with beautiful views of Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks, Camels Hump and Mount Philo at look out points. Great for walking, trail running, biking as well as winter activities. Go get it!

Good trails, but most are not marked and there are many trails that divert off the main one. Great views of the lake, both high up on the cliffs and close to the water!!

Buggy. Wish the talks were marked. Very confusing. Good spot for walking dogs, though.

I think the 3 star ranking is low - it's an easy 3 mile hike but the views along the lake are incredible. Cool place for dogs and kids .... One knock... Trails are not well marked but we had a blast!!

The trailhead is currently incorrect, you will find it on Center Rd. This is a very nice and easy hike with some unique flora and a few nice cliff views over the lake. You can descent the cliffs and climb them, but they do not allow diving. The traffic can be pretty high with joggers and dog-walkers.

Red Rocks Park is a nice little flat loop ! Great tall trees make it a nice place to walk, on a warm day !

Very easy and enjoy able hike. I did the entire loop. There was a light drizzle, but the amount of trees kept me covered and dry. Very empty for Memorial Day weekend! A great place to escape so nearby and disconnect from city noise. I walked, but I am already planning a run soon! It's about 2 miles and is pretty flat, except some ups and downs that will add some areas to push a little harder in. Nice views of Lake Champlain and super peaceful!

Good, well-used network of trails in a woodlands park near Burlington, VT. Views of the lake, forested paths, and cliffs. Nice spot to walk your dog, see some trees, and get a little exercise very close to town. Accessible year round.

This was a nice little hike. It was perfect for my two and five year old girls and our little dog. The views were great too. Hikers beware though...make sure to lock your car doors! We thought we had locked up, however upon returning from the walk we saw the mini vans side door was open and found out my purse was taken and $34 from my mother in-law's wallet. So while the hike itself was enjoyable the discovery of missing items soured the experience. Oh well, lesson learned. One, double check doors. Two, purchase an identity protection plan!

A very nice walk through the woods with some great vistas. You can do this as a loop or out-and-back if you want. Loop is around 2 mi. Great for a nice trail run or walk with your dog.
