Welcome to the Red Rock Mountain Trail. The Red Rock Mountain Trail (RRMT) is a foot and bike path about 7.5 km long that goes along the crests and valleys of the Red Rock Mountain.

Red Rock Mountain Trailhead Story
The Red Rock Mountain Trail was first constructed by local volunteers in 2010-2011 with funding from the Trillium Foundation for construction and Atlantic Power provided the funding for signage.
In 2016, with funding from the Lake Super Watershed Conservancy and Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (Rural Economic Development (RED) Program) the Township of Red Rock hired a trail builder to realign any steep inclines on the Red Rock Mountain Trail. The existing trail was groomed and upgraded to a meet a trail Classification BLUE.
A parking area is installed at the head of the mountain trail. A trailhead sign and new trail marker posts and directional signage are also installed. The trail now includes a south directional extension of 1.4km to an area known as Table Rock.
Current Classification (Moderate)
BLUE with minimal Black inclines
