RED MOUNTAIN - WEST LOOP
One of the most scenic trails of the event, Red Mountain enjoys completely unexpected views that almost remind you of the Rubicon Trail in the High Sierras. This is the less difficult of the 2 Red Mountain trails. There is no bypass through the Commando Corner, the most notable obstacle. However, coming down is much easier than going up this obstacle. The trail ascends the mountain into some high elevations into some incredible pine populated areas with an old deserted cabin as the perfect area to take a lunch break. There are a couple areas that get tight, and pinstriping is likely. Either front or rear locker is recommended.
Pause to take in views of Dry Fork Canyon immediately to the west from Dear Crack with the Vernal Valley in the distance to the south.
Sand stone canyons, wedges, and ledges. Some sand and dirt hills.
