Description

Red Creek Trail originates at the Red Creek Trailhead and continues for 6.3 miles along Red Creek.

The first third of the trail follows the creek in the valley and continues to the popular camping area known as The Forks. From here, it climbs sharply to meet up with the Rocky Point Trail and continues above the creek until meeting back up with it after the Breathed Mountain Trail junction.

You'll find some great campsites around The Forks and again at the split with the Left and Right Forks of Red Creek. The sites are popular and fill up fast... so get there early and stake your claim!
