Upper Redhead is a smooth pumpy rollercoaster winding down the lower area of 'Poochies trees'. Lower Redhead gets a little steeper and rockier. Lower Redhead is a steeper, gnarlier alternative to descending lower Redtop. Great to add a bit more to the ride as well; can be combined with Redtop to make a variety of loops. This trail is NOT recommended for hiking.

 Really nice rock work and exposure on this trail. Was super impressed with the large armored switchback part way down.
