Red Dog Trail is scenic with overnight camping spots available. The grade is gentle, and water is abundant most of the way. The trail travels down Red Dog Creek to a point where it joins Briggs Creek Trail #1132. The trail fords Briggs Creek, so caution should be used in times of high water. Although the trail is open year round. low water periods are best for fording the creek.

Directions: From Grant's Pass: Follow I-5 north to exit #61 (Merlin). Follow the Merlin-Galice Road west until approximately half a mile pas Indian Mary Park. Turn left onto Primary Forest Route 25 and follow southwest it to Forest Service Road 2512. Follow 2512 south to Forest Service Road 2512-068 and follow this road south to the trailhead.

Seasonal Access: Normally Accessible: Year-round

Facility Type: Trail
