“Tree Top Obstacle Course”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

My family and I spent an afternoon at Red Mountain Park on the tree top obstacle course. The staff was very friendly and helpful and made safety a top priority. The course was challenging and very fun. My son is very athletic and loves a good challenge and he came off the course loving every minute of it. Thank guys. We will be back!

“Nice Place”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

Don't follow the address tripadvisor.com lists. The place is located on Park Lane, not Lyon Lane as listed. If you have Maps or GPS, enter the park name and it will pop up. And then have fun. :)

“Interesting combo of historic mines and views of the city”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

The trail is a great way to get exercise and see some great flora, fauna and views of the city. We have covered most of the park after two hikes. The highlight of the trip is Grace's Gap Overlook. It has a beautiful view of the city. The SkyHy Treehouse was fun with a small swinging bridge to a platform around a large tree. The leaves were still on the trees so there was a limited view from the tree house. But Grace's Gap is cleared of trees, so we got our view fix. The Ishkooda Overlook was nice, but Grace's Gap is awesome. They have a nice platform for viewing and a picnic table if you packed some food. The trails are well marked, but as with most trails, there will be moments when you are not absolutely sure which way to go. There are plenty of signs and we got a map at the Welcome Kiosk that was helpful. We have not tried the zipline.
