Red Mountain Creek Road is an easy, 3.4-mile out-and-back road that offers abundant camping options. The road is a simple dirt road, 2+ vehicles wide the entire way, and can easily be traveled by any vehicle. Red Mountain Creek begins at Lime Creek and travels south, passing 6-8 dispersed campsites and Ivy Creek Road. These first campsites all vary in size. Some sites are large grassy sites good for groups or trailers, while others are small, rough, and rocky to enter and only suitable for a single vehicle and a small ground tent. Views at every campsite are breathtaking. As you get closer to the trail's end, you will approach the Ivy Creek Campground, an improved Forest Service campground with a pit toilet and four campsites. The first two are less than 20 feet long and are only suitable for tenters or small trailers like popups. The last two campsites in the campground are hike-in tent sites only. This campground has an extremely small turnaround endpoint. Thus, large trailers should avoid entering it.

Beyond Ivy Creek Campground, there's one small dispersed campsite good for a single tent or vehicle, followed by a large, grassy campsite next to the creek, suitable for groups or trailers. The road ends at a private ranch gate shortly after the last campsite.
