The town of Red River is located in the Rocky Mountains of Northern New Mexico, at the southernmost tip of the Sangre de Cristo Range. The town was originally founded as a mining and logging center, and many of its original structures have been renovated to keep the Victorian-era feel. Visiting here is almost like stepping back in time to small town values. In a valley completely surrounded by the stunning beauty of the Carson National Forest, the area is perfect for the summer activities that keep families returning year after year.

From old logging roads to single track trails in the National Forest to taking the chair lift at the resort, there is plenty to experience. Visit old mining camps or explore the vast terrain with a jeep or ATV by taking a guided tour.
