Red Cap Hole, in the Trinity Alps Wilderness, is a wonderful hike. What makes it a highlight is that it has very little elevation change, passes through some beautiful montane meadows, and makes a detour on the return leg to a secluded lake for a refreshing dip. It also traverses forest slowly recovering from the 1999 Megram Fire; be prepared for downed trees and brush impinging on the trail. If the trail beyond the end is ever reopened, it could be linked to Hike 49 to make an awesome loop, best done counterclockwise.
