Red Hill runs eastward from Highway 191 to Blue River Road. As the name implies, it goes over a red hill, a massive red hill with amazing views of both the White Mountains and the Blue Mountains of New Mexico. In 1988, endangered Mexican gray wolves were reintroduced to this area. There are numerous dispersed campsites along the first three miles of the trail's western end. The free Blue Crossing Campground at the trail's eastern end has three campsites with picnic tables and fire grates. Two of the sites also have Adorondaik-style shelters. The campground also has a vault toilet. While well maintained, the road has narrow switchbacking shelf sections where the roadbed is red clay. These shelves would be extremely hazardous if wet and slippery. The Blue River ford at the road's east end is impassable in high water.
