Red Hills

The Red Hills are the middle group of three large ridges that buttress the Lost River Range’s eastern flank. The Donkey Hills are the northernmost group and the Hawley Mountains the southern group. This northwest to southeast trending ridge is bounded by Dry Creek on its northern and eastern sides, Wet Creek on its southern end and Corral Creek in the west. This ridge system has three ranked peaks. Taylor Mountain is located at the ridge’s north end. At 8,644 feet it is the highest of the three ranked peaks. Red Hill is located at the southern end.
