The Red Canyon Trail #118 begins on Forest Service Road #549, State Draw Road, and ends at Forest Service Road #540, Old Highway 90. The trail mostly follows an old two track for the first 1.7 miles through a dense forest of spruce/fir, open meadows and aspen groves. In about 3.2 miles, it reaches the rim of Red Canyon and begins to switchback down the canyon towards Red Canyon Creek. After crossing the creek, it climbs out of the drainage and continues on a more gradual descent to FSR #540. This trail provides beautiful view of the Wilson Mountain Range and Lone Cone.
