Tipple

The mile-long Tipple Trail is accessed from the Red Cliffs Campground about 0.7 mile up the Red Reef East Trail. It is primarily an old, 2-track, dirt trail with a section of single-track that drops down to the Leeds Creek and up to the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve/NCA northern boundary. The trail is relatively easy except for the Leeds Creek crossing which can be a challenge when the creek is flowing high.  The elevation gain from the Red Reef East Reef trail to the Reserve/NCA boundary is about 90 feet with an up and down elevation change of about 225 feet.  The trail offers nice views of the riparian areas in the Leeds Creek drainage and excellent views of the red rock formations seen from the White Reef area.  The trail lies entirely within the Red Cliffs NCA managed by the Bureau of land Management and is open to hikers, bikers, and equestrians but is closed to motor vehicles.
