We took a guided jeep tour up to Goose Lake. Just about had our insides jarred out, but the view when we made it to the top was worth it! Had a great time meeting new people during the drive. I do not recommend this if you are nervous of other people driving in tricky situations - steep/rough roads.
We visited Red River for the first time. Booked a trip to Goose Lake with New Mexico Adventure Company. They use Ford F-250 trucks with 4 wheel drive and fitted with 3 rows of bench seats and seat belts. Trey was our driver/guide. We had an absolute blast. It's a very rough trail and you definitely want to pull that... 更多
Take a camera, a jacket, and a flashlight for exploring the mining caves along the way. There are water crossings depending on the time of year and weather.

We have been 4-wheeling for many years and are used to rough trails. This one seems to be especially rough. We were wondering if it was going to be worth it and luckily it was. There is a beautiful and oh, so peaceful lake at the top. Don't forget to look for mountain sheep!
Great trail for experienced riders, not for the faint at heart. Don't even think of taking less than a four wheel drive or OHV. Full size pickups will have trouble due to narrow passages.
We rented a side by side and traveled up to Goose Lake. It was an amazing view. The road can be a little sketchy because only one vehicle can pass at a time, so sometimes you have to pull over to back up to let someone pass and it's on the edge of the mountain. As long as you are... 更多
Take water and protein bars or snacks. Beautiful trail with lots of views and nature. Take your camera too!!! Don't get in a hurry, just enjoy the journey :))))
We LOVE goose lake!! With that being said...the journey to the top is not easy. The trail is rough, narrow and unsettled in areas...4 wheel drive or motorcycle is the best way to get there. Been going to Red River for 50 years, and enjoy taking "newbies" to see the beauty of goose lake...it never disappoints!
