“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is a must do every time we go to Red River to ride our 4-wheelers. My sister rented a jeep and went up there in it too. The trail is very narrow in places so if you are going in a jeep it's a good idea to go in the morning before a lot of the other people get there. The lake is the crowning beauty of the trail and is a nice place to try to catch a trout, hike, or have a picnic lunch. Be sure to take your camera because you might see elk, big horned sheep, deer, or chipmunks up there too.

“4th of July Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Beautiful 4 mile hike, 2 miles in and 2 miles out. The first 2 miles are steep but not treacherous. You'll know you went hiking. And the lake is gorgeous. Went with a 9 year old and he had no trouble keeping up.

“Great ATV Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Goose Lake is worth the effort. Take a tour, rent a jeep or bring you own - but go you will be glad you did.

“Awesome day trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Great place to have lunch after 4 wheeling ! Take red Salmon eggs if fishing the lake..
We took 3 UTVs up to the lake in a little over an hour, passing a few jeep tours along the way.
Stop & see the Buffalo mine shaft @ marker 8 You will need a flashlight!! You will get a little wet & dirty too. There are a couple of really nice areas to stop for beer as well. Wide enough for jeeps/trucks but not a novice. Enjoy it!! We did!

“No for the faint-hearted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Don't attempt unless you have a skilled driver. We went up 4 miles, removing boulders and tree limbs in order to pass-then couldn't get through a waist deep snow drift. Could see more drifts up the trail, so backed down and turned around (no small feat) We were in a Ford Raptor a little big and wide for the trail, but we thoroughly enjoyed our adventure.
