Hike Red Bluff

Red Bluff Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Brandon Hebert

Red Bluff is much like the Grand Canyon, just smaller. The hike down the bluff to the creek and eventually into the center makes it a great day trip for many people as well as a great photography spot.

Starting about 300 or so feet up, Red Bluff offers beautiful views of a mini Grand Canyon that continues to grow with every rainfall. From the hike, to the road it has torn to shreds, or to the creek, Red Bluff offers many views to see some great aspects of Mother Nature.

On the map, the skinny road where you used to be able to drive along is now closed due to Red Bluff growing. Park on either side of the road where the barricades are and hike either on the road or along the left side of the Bluff if facing away from the Bluff. From there you can hike to the bottom and along a creek. Follow the creek and it will lead you to the center of the Bluff for some amazing views.

Some people do repel down to the middle of the Bluff as well. You can also fly drones all around the Bluff to get some great panoramic shots.

The elevation and out and back distance are both rough numbers. Not totally sure about these numbers but do give a good idea about what to expect.

Bigger than you'd think

We've been a couple of times. Some intense steep joining with lots to explore.

Awesome spot!

Red bluff is absolutely breathtaking! Looking down into the canyon is even more stunning each time you look down into it. It doesn’t get old. The train car wreck was also neat.
