The first route The Red Hill is a 1.7 mile Class 1 trail, which contain a moderate and steady pitch to the top. It is a steeper old jeep road that goes to the summit. Though there are no real steep or rocky sections like the Main Trail on Mt. Major or the Mt. Percival, the Red Hill is very consistent in pitch and never becomes gradual until the summit. There is a spring that has been piped on your left roughly a mile up.



Essential Gear

In summer no technical gear is required. In winter snowshoes are required on this trail. Pack crampons just in case the trail is icier that expected.
