Moderate to difficult hike, six miles one way.
If nature is your thing then you will love the Goose Lake trail. On the way up you can catch old miner cabins, blasting holes, relics from the past and of course beautiful scenery, I went in September, the temperature at the bottom of the trail was 81 and it was sleeting at the top. Just be prepared for a change of weather. Love it!

An extremely challenging, eight to ten mile hike (one way).
One of the most amazing views when you get to the lake.
If you plan on going past the lake, then you need to have "real hiking gear and equipment." Otherwise just straight up to the lake is a fairly easy climb if you are in shape. Kid friendly.

Enchanted Forest is New Mexico's largest and only full service cross country ski area. We offer a full rental shop, PSIA XC ski lessons, ski patrol, and snack bar, all at our comfy day lodge and lesson area. With 32 km of ski trails, and 18 km of snowshoe trails we offer plenty of terrain for anyone to have fun. We also offer Summer and Winter on trail yurt rentals. Ski or Snowshoe in the Winter, or Hike or Mt. Bike in the Summer.
Be ready to educate your family regarding yurts. A great hike to the top of the ski area. A cute little hideaway complete with bunk beds, wood burning stove, propane camp stove and lantern. Enjoy eating around the firepit or around the large dining room table inside. It's not really roughing it unless you aren't fond of outhouses.

This place is incredible! Before the Michael Martin Murphy concert we enjoyed the music of Matt Gomez. A local musician, Matt has a beautiful voice and is an accomplished guitarist. Dinner was the best brisket we have ever eaten, served with all you can eat sides. Throughout the concert, behind the stage fish were hitting the water for an evening meal on the lake. Michael Martin Murphy's concert was good, he played his hits throughout the night, our favorite was "Wildfire" accompanied by his son on the lap harp. The road to the amphitheatre was a dirt road with ruts from recent rains. It's roughness added to the evenings fun. We would highly recommend attending this concert venue and dinner.

Approximately five miles one-way, this is a scenic and moderate-rated trail that leads hikers along a river and through meadows.
Beautiful, peaceful experience. We walked about one hour in and back, over the first 3 stream crossings with railings. One would need an early start to go all the way up. As a city girl, I was a bit uneasy about the bear warning signs when we arrived! Although rare I know, I would have felt more confortable reviewing what to do if a bear is encountered (ie there are different guidelines for a NM black bear than for a grizzly). I noticed a group of 3 rangers passed us, and one had a small radio attached to his gear playing at a medium volume. I wouldve felt more comfortable if we had something like that.
We had 3 liters of water, which was just about right between the 2 of us for a two hour hike in July. I wish I had remembered bug spray. I got one bite from a biting fly.
I would like to do it again someday, but with more preparation and awareness of the features of the natural surroundings, and how to minimize wildlife risks.

Finally found this trail and made it to the top. The trek is worth it. We saw Beautiful waterfalls on the way up and followed the water for quite a while. Once we crossed the creek, the hike was much steeper and We stopped more often. We ran into people, horses and mtn bikers constantly, but it was Labor Day weekend. When we reached the top, the view of the lake was totally worth it!! Beautiful!! State forest officials have port a potties at the base and at the top.(yea) Wear good hiking boots, bring a long sleeved shirt as it's chilly on the top, and bring water. It took us 1 hour and 45 minutes to go up but 45 minutes to descend. Super hike! We would do it again!!

Located right in Red River, can be taken as a two or four mile hike.
Our family and our dogs have enjoyed this trail for 50 years. We visit Red River every summer, for a few weeks, and take many walks per day, along the nature trail. Peaceful, beautiful and you will typically see a few deer while walking that usually eat out of your hands!

Great walking path, short quarter-mile loop.
This is a nice park a block or so off main street. It offer a wide variety of activities - basketball courts, beach volleyball, hiking trail, playground, picnic tables, tennis courts, Frisbee golf, and a skate park that I can remember. The park is well shaded and has good parking. Bathrooms are just port-a-potties. There is a nice little creek running through the park. Cute little chipmunks running around everywhere.
