The Red Tail Trail drops approximately 1200' from the Cranmore Trail to Hurricane Mountain Road. Although it climbs well, it's most fun ridden downhill! The trail start is signed and leaves north from the Cranmore Trail, approximately 0.2 miles west from the Cranmore and Black Cap Trail intersection.
