Red Creek is a great hike. I did this with a friend as part of a three day/two night Dolly Sods trip. As with many of the trails in the Dolly Sods be careful to stay on trail— at times it is easy to get sidetracked.
There are some spectacular campgrounds along the upper parts of this trail. We stayed at one with a waterfall that was perfect to sit under after a tough day of hiking.
