Folks, We will hike up to and around the Red Mesa loop. Approx. distance-8.2miles and about 1650 feet of elevation change. This is a very beautiful and rewarding hike. One of my favorites.Dress for the weather. If real cold dress in LAYERS and if significant snow Microspikes,Yak Tracks or snowshoes. Bring plenty of food and water.Will add more as weather dictates it.
Overview: Directions: Take I-70 West to C-470 East. Take the Wadsworth Boulevard exit. Turn right off of the exit and then turn right at the first light, Deer Creek Canyon road. Go about 2 miles to a stop sign, turn left and continue past the South Valley park trail head. In less than a mile from the South Valley park trail head, turn left onto Grizzly Drive. This will lead you to the obvious parking lot on your right. Dogs allowed on a leash.
