Rented a UTV from Mike's Fun Place in Red River (they were great). Pretty rough road all the way up. Georgeous lake, make sure you hike up the switchbacks on the South end of the lake for a great view of Taos ski area.

The road is a little rocky, but not dangerous. Perfect ride for us. Take your fishing pole and your lunch.

Ok I totally Love the idea of ATV and I think for a sec its super fun. But there is some SERIOUS terrain on the way up. Also road is teeny tiny, which makes hard for two ATV to pass let alone a Jeep.

From the Copper King Lodge we could walk for miles along beautiful trails. The scenery is beautiful with abundant wildlife wooded area.

This is a nice trail that takes you up to a lake nestled in the mountain above Red River NM. It's not too rough to where a stock 4x4 can't make it, but it's rough enough to get the 4x4 experience. I think it took about 2 hrs or so to get it.

8 rough miles in a 4x4 will get you to Goose Lake. So worth it. On the backside of the lake is a steep, short trail that takes you to the peak. From there you have incredible 360 degree views including Taos Ski Mountain. Goose Lake is a gorgeous area! Highly recommended.

I'm not sure how to describe goose lake! Breathtaking doesn't seem to do it justice. We had a blast traveling up in an utv!

Our family rented a Polaris from Mike's fun place and drove to Goose Lake. The trail is pretty bumpy but definitely worth the trip. Allow about 4 hours for the trip up and back. That allows sometime to enjoy the view. Very popular sight.
