    Directions to Trailhead

    Hiking the Redstreak Creek Trail is a quick and relatively easy hike that features several steep sections of terrain and a peaceful forest setting. While out on the trail, you will hike through the tranquil woodland atmosphere along Redstreak Creek, eventually reaching the signposted end of the trail with a nice sitting area to pause for a quick rest. Although this trail is generally well-maintained, severe weather will see a fair amount of blowdown along the trail.
