The Red Jacket Trail

We accessed this branch of the trail by Highway 66. We parked the vehicle in a lot below, and climbed some steps to the trail above.

The trail is an asphalt trail. It is shared between pedestrians and bicyclists. We walked for a short distance and returned to our vehicle, as we had strollers and babies.

The purpose of our walking adventure was to see the fall colors. Many leaves with brilliant fall colors were already on the trail. Vivid maroon colors, yellow, greens. The trail is beneath the branches of the trees along the edges. The trail itself is elevated above the ravines on both sides.

As you walk along, you see the tree tops below and some buildings. There are also tree tops on the hill above your head. It is very picturesque.
