This is a great intro to Kolapore for intermediate/advanced riders. You can ride it either direction, but it's recommended to go counterclockwise because Red Death is best done downhill.

Most of these trails are higher on the escarpment, so they stay relatively dry in the wet season.

Please consider donating to the Kolapore Wilderness Trail Association, who maintains these trails and some of the amenities at the parking lot.

Great trail. This is my report for ALL Kolapore trails, not just Red Death. Rode all trails on June 4, and all Kolapore trails were great. One log down (can't remember where) on the entire system. Bugs were not bad at all. Only issues: a few small sections that were swampy. The only other issue was some areas were the brush is creeping onto the trail and it's hard to see. Could use some brush-whacking. But that's a minor concern. New bridges and so forth and regular use make this a great ride.
