Access Description

Once you check-in to Redbird at the gate, you can receive a local map of the park or navigate Redbird using On X Offroad. From the parking lot, you will take the main trail, Trail 0, through the woods and cross the railroad tracks. You will then take the main road running through Redbird SRA until you see the sign for Trail 5 on the left hand side after you pass Powerline Hill and the shelter house. You will follow the trail up the hill and immediately make a right as soon as you get to the clearing. Head west in the clearing for roughly 0.125 miles until you see Trail 5x on the right hand side.
