This 8 mile trail offers a nice hike through various landscapes and the Redstone Park Canyon.
The Redstone Trail provides a relatively quick way to get into the upper reaches of Whitewater Creek within the Gila Wilderness. The trail leaves Silver Creek and climbs quickly to 9,000 ft within the first 1/2 mile. The trail winds through mixed conifer forest for about four miles and then descends into Whitewater Creek at Redstone Park at the junction of Trail #207. This junction is a popular camping area.
When hiking several trails on a single "hike", log it with a generic name that describes the hike. Then link the trails traveled, check out the example.
