The Red Hills Trail runs for approximately 5 km parallel to the north shore of Francois Lake in Red Hills, ending at a viewpoint above the lake.

Due to the southern exposure of this area, the trail melts out earlier in the spring than most other trails in the vicinity. It is particularly scenic in the fall when the many different deciduous plants are changing color.
