Description

Generally utilized between the North Shore Drive parking area and Blue Connector, Red Trail actually starts just west of The Pine Mountain Lookout on Yellow Trail - Pine Mountain. From Yellow, Red Trail dives down the south side of Pine Mountain to the bowl-like area east of Hemlock Hills. From here the trail intersects with Blue Connector and veers sharply left.

Follow the Red blazes as the trail bends right, contours over large granite outcrops, and then heads west. From here the trail undulates through more rocks, occasionally showing awesome views of hills to the south as it trends generally uphill. Finally, after some tight switchbacks, Red Trail heads south and plummets towards the creek connecting Rainbow Lake to Lake Windwing.

Once the trail turns to the right (west), it becomes doubletrack and winds lazily to the shores of Lake Windwing. Continue past Orange Access Trail - West and the Unmaintained Connector until you reach the parking area on North Shore Drive.
