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.

Setting out from the trailhead, you will make your way into the dense forest and cross over Sinclair Creek, following closely along the waters of Redstreak Creek as it cuts through the forest to the southeast. There is a bit of steep terrain along this first portion of the route, but it will even out into a pleasant stroll where you can relax in the peaceful woodland atmosphere.
