If they don't get rain I would not be surprised if they temporarily banned ARV's. Many areas are already closed or restricted.

Goose Lake is the best known trail in the Red River, NM area. The trail can be full of surprises that can take a seemingly easy trail and offer you challenges. Seasonal changes create fun adventures ranging from easy family favorite water crossings to adrenaline junkie snow wheeling. Immediately you are faced with a drive through the river with depths that have ended more than one adventure before it could start. From the river the trail climbs the mountain which leads to a shelf road with plenty of room for one vehicle, but will make for creative parking when you pass opposing traffic. A "cave" and remnants of mining cabins from the late 1800s and smaller water crossings further the adventure. Reaching the crystal clear lake provides photo opportunities as well as fishing, hiking, or primitive camping. Wildlife like Marmots and Rams can often be seen on the ridge surrounding the lake.

Technical rating: (4-6) Easy-Moderate

Quite rocky or deep ruts. Rocks to 12" and frequent. Water crossings may exceed hub depth with strong currents. Shelves to 6". Mud may require checking before proceeding. Moderate grades to 20 degrees. Sidehill may approach 30 degrees. 4WD necessary and second attempts may be required with stock vehicles. Caution may be required with wider vehicles.

Greenie Peak located in the Carson National Forest is the highest point of motorized travel in New Mexico at 11,145 feet. Upon reaching the peak you will have sweeping views of the Wheeler Peak Wilderness and also a bird's eye view of the Red River Ski Resort. For anyone touring the Enchanted Circle this high altitude adventure is a must.



Technical rating: (3) Easy

Dirt road. Rutted, washes, or gulches. Water crossings up to 6" depth. Passable mud. Grades up to 10 degrees. Small rocks or holes. 4WD recommended but 2WD possible under good conditions and with adequate ground clearance and skill. No width problems for any normal vehicle. Vehicle passing spots frequently available if less than two vehicles wide.

At over a hundred years old, the Old Red River Pass is a trail with some history. This was the only eastern access into the town of Red River until the mid 1960s. Considering the town began to gain popularity as a tourist destination in the 1930s, it is fun to imagine what it was like to travel in the family station wagon down these switchbacks for the annual family vacation. Now the Old Red River Pass is a Forest Road with little maintenance, so high clearance vehicles are required. On the climb up the pass you will encounter spectacular views of the town and the Wheeler Peak wilderness.

Water, this Jeep trail is for those who like to splash through the water. Situated adjacent to the Red River Ski Resort, the trail will treat you to the benefits of all the snow melt. It is not a long trail but allows you to play in the water, in fact the trail forces you to play in the water! Pioneer Creek steps up the water play by having the creek run directly down the trail for more than a quarter of the length of the trail. With the trailhead located in downtown Red River and being relatively short, it is a perfect trail for those with a tight schedule but a desire to explore the Carson National Forest.
