At 8,500' elevation, summer days average a comfortable 75°, and nights are cool and blanketed by millions of stars. Red River is the perfect vacation getaway, no matter how you like to vacation! Be as active as you like - there's lots to do - or just relax and enjoy watching the hummingbirds. Go hiking or mountain biking on any of the Carson National Forest's 138 trails. You can even take your bike up on the ski lifts and ride back down.

Nearby you will find excellent rock climbing, world-class golf, whitewater rafting, hot air ballooning, rock climbing, and llama trekking. Go horseback riding through alpine meadows carpeted with wildflowers. Wildlife abounds, so be ready with your camera! Once your horse is bedded down for the night, mosey on over to a Cowboy Evening with barbecue and entertainment under the stars. And in July, it's time to RODEO! The Cowboys New Year Rodeo is a tradition not to be forgotten in the west.

Fishing for native cut throat or brown trout can provide a tasty dinner for the grill. Jeep and 4-wheeling in the magnificent Carson National Forest provide a great day of sightseeing, or take Northern New Mexico's most popular day trip around the Enchanted Circle, by car, motorcycle (or bicycle!), through magnificent mountain scenery and high desert to historic Taos for galleries and museums, dining and shopping.

And no matter what time of year you visit, there is always something going on in this little town. Red River hosts a Memorial Day weekend motorcycle rally, culminating in an Enchanted Circle Ride to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire. The River and Brews is a much-loved local Blues Festival featuring local micro-brewed beer. And of Course, Red River has the best little July 4th celebration anywhere.

And of course, this beautiful Rocky Mountain town is also the perfect place to just relax and enjoy cool summer days and star-filled nights in some of the most beautiful country anywhere!
