The Red Blanket Trail offers spectacular views of pristine creeks and waterfalls. A longer hike can be accomplished by linking the Stuart Falls, Lucky Camp, and Red Blanket Falls trails. This would be approximately a 9-mile hike roundtrip. Visitors on horseback should be cautious of steep edges along the trail.

There are numerous small creeks and springs located along the trail. Visitors should be aware that water in the wilderness and backcountry areas may not be safe to drink. Water is not tested and should be purified before drinking.
