Visit the Park


Red Mountain Park’s 15-mile trail system traverses exciting and diverse terrain.

Stop and smell the oak leaf hydrangeas. Shred red rock. Uncover the site where miners sought ore. Soar through the long-leaf pines. Or kick back while your four-legged best friend romps and roams at Remy’s Dog Park.

However you choose to experience RMP, we’ve got something for everyone.
