When people first came to Red River the first thing on their mind was GOLD! Now people come to the mountain in search of a different treasure. They come in search of fun, adventure, and relaxation that is found in our quaint town. Red River is a mountain retreat that’s built for exploring.
Outdoor recreation in Red River can be planned, such as a day at Red River Ski & Summer Area, a snowmobile tour, grabbing some bait and tackle and heading to the river, or a whitewater rafting adventure.
It can also be spontaneous. The more relaxed outdoor adventurers take pleasure in getting lost exploring the natural beauty that encompasses our mountain town. (Make sure to check out the trail map so you don’t actually get lost.) The best way to see the area is by wandering around hiking trails like The Red River Nature Trail, Columbine Trail, Sawmill Park Trail, Middlefork Trail, Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area, Goose Creek Trail, Lost Lake Trail, Horseshoe Lake Trail, Wheeler Peak and Wild Rivers Recreation Area.
The Red River area is a mountain playground. It’s perfect for the adrenaline junkies who love shredding down the mountain on skis, snowmobiles, mountain bikes, or OHVs. For a more relaxing time outdoors there’s fishing in our beautiful Red River, hunting some of the best big and small game, or taking a stroll on the many hiking trails around the mountain.
From the thrill seekers to the outdoor explorers, Red River offers activities that are sure to get you outside.
