Red Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"The exceptionally easy nature of this hike aside, it provides one of the most fascinating looks at Arizona geology to be found anywhere. The trail winds for a pleasant 1.25 miles through pinyon pine and junipers toward a broken rise of cinder and red rock readily visible pines, which often grow on barren black cinder slopes. A 6-foot-high stone check dam that must be climbed by way of a wooden ladder marks the entrance into the mountain’s interior."
--Scott S. Warren, 100 Classic Hikes Arizona (The Mountaineers Books).
This was an pretty easy hike. When you get to the end you're inside a collapsed volcano. The hoodoo weathering features are a nice payoff.
