Red Hills Loop is a 8.2 mile loop trail located near Jamestown, California. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.
Once a restricted area for military training maneuvers, this wild landscape is now open to the public. The trails are unmaintained, and the landscape is pristine. Parts of the trails are made up of old wagon roads. It is a wonderful place to spend the day, especially in mid spring, when the wildflowers are in bloom, and the rattlesnakes are still underground.
The Red Hills are located between Keystone and Chinese Camp, on Red Hills Rd. On Hwy 120/49, turn to drive through Chinese Camp. At the end of the road turn left on Red Hills Rd. The parking lot is located a couple miles down the road. In the wet season the road will closed due to flooding.
A parking lot is large enough to accommodate several cars, and a few trucks with horse trailers.
