Route: Red Hill Trail

Trail was snow free and dry.

The original snowmobile/rocky road start has been closed to hikers. On the north side of the parking lot, there is now a new footpath that sort of parallels that road, then crosses it where the hiking trail takes a right. Gentle grades, but footbed isn't well established yet.

I ran a track on my phone on the way down and measured it at 1.6 miles, parking lot to tower.
