Buckhorn Trail #33037

Buckhorn Trailhead

Buckhorn Trail #33037 extends into the scenic red rock terrain and takes you to a vantage point overlooking Red Canyon.  This trail can be combined with the Goldenwall Trail and Red Canyon Bicycle Trail to make a nice five mile round trip. Castle Bridge Trail can be added to this combination, this would add a scenic side trail and a little more difficulty without adding length. This trail is accessed from the Red Canyon Campground.

The Red Canyon Campground provides a day use area with picnic tables.
