“The Red Trail passes through several creeks with easy riding down by the creeks - but there are a few climbs to be had.”— Lost Justpastnowhere

Then you've got about one mile of easy forest road before the trail turns to a singletrack. The singletrack begins a difficult 200 ft climb after passing through a creek. After a short, flat section, you've earned a fun singletrack descent down to another creek crossing.
The easy singletrack continues in the valley for a half mile and then you have a difficult climb out. The climb out is initially singletrack but it becomes a forest road shortly after a power line cut. Follow Powerline Road for about one mile and then there will be a singletrack off to the right. This is a fun, continuous (you've earned it!) descent following a creek.
There is one more short, steep climb to surmount before the finish. After this last climb, there is about a half mile of trail that passes through an area logged in winter 16/17 and this section is pretty desolate. They've re-established the trail and it is marked with red and blue ribbons. When you reach the forest road, turn left to return to your car.
