Description

The Red Rock Canyon Loop starts from the Red Rock Canyon parking lot and is very well marked.

This path follows the rim of the Red Rock Canyon upstream for a short ways. It then crosses over to the other side of the canyon on a sturdy bridge with great views of the canyon below and the water rushing under the bridge. On the other side of the canyon, the path again follows the rim of the canyon, and then crosses another bridge back to its starting point.

As its name suggests, all the canyon rock is red, a dark red. The water is never far below the path and cascades down as a series of rapids with a few small, placid pools. This makes for an exciting experience, that is best savored slowly to admire nature at its best.
