A former forestry and mill town of approximately 1000 people, Red Rock is about nine kilometres miles from Highway 11.
I didn’t venture off the highway but Red Rock known for wonderful views of the local cliffs, as well as for continuing the proud Highway 11 tradition of summer musical festivals – Red Rock hosts the annual Live from the Rock Folk Festival which takes place the second week of August.
The town also hosts an annual mountain run. The town also features a beachfront, marina, and boardwalk – just turn south at the abandoned tavern. The Red Rock Inn provides accommodation in town.
