Amazing views of the canyon with great colors in the fall.

Dustin Brown

Overview

Sunrise to Sunset for day use. 24 hours for camping.
The trail begins at the "California Nature Trail" and continues on to follow the canyon ridge. There are two possible ways down from the ridge of the canyon. High traffic during vacation times, holidays, and weekends. Careful not to follow a natural water path instead of the trail.
Features: Birding — Fall Colors — Views — Wildflowers — Wildlife

Description

The trailhead is at the very end of the road in the park. There are some markings but not many. It is very easy to get off on a wrong path on the NW side of the trail. Careful not to fall off an edge, however repelling and rock climbing is available at this park. The trail is awesome in the fall season. The trail is partially maintained, more on the Western side of the canyon than the Eastern. There are multiple great view points along the canyon. Small climbs in elevation, not too bad. Take your time and enjoy the amazing views.

Flora & Fauna

There are small ground cactus all around this park.

There are many more miles of trail than are shown here. It appeared many were recently created as loops off the California Trail. I hiked 5.5 miles and left plenty to explore for the next time I go to Red Rock Canyon. Had a great day and met many friendly people on the trail. The amenities were nice and clean. Definitely will consider a camping weekend with some rappelling. Closer to OKC and a fun alternative to the Wichitas. Feb 25, 2018

I should have noted this is the "official" park trail but the unmarked and unofficial trails are fun here. I did land on my rear off a 15' rock face trying to pull a 007 move to a tree for a quicker exit off a side trail. Nice park though. Feb 25, 2018
