Red River is a small town with a big impact along the Enchanted Circle, with more than its fair share of thrills, great food and fun events. Summer time in Red River is a magnet for folks looking to cool off, and visitors from all over Taos and the U.S. love this high-altitude village. Just walking the shop-lined streets can fill up a day.

Chairlift rides Summer Scenic Chairlift rides run Friday, Saturday and Sunday usually through mid-June, when lift service then is daily. Strap your bike on the Platinum chair, and bring along your gear to hike or disc golf, or just ride round trip for the expansive views.

Tubing Mid-June to mid-August you can fly down the mountain on Red River Ski Area’s tubing slopes. The Little Blue Surface Lift opens up the 400-foot Baby Blue Hill to 4-year-olds and older.

Disc golf An 18-hole disc golf course is also up top, with tees and baskets that wander through aspens and open up to beautiful views of the Sangre de Cristos. Bring your own discs or rent from the staff at the pro-shop, which is located at the Tip Restaurant at the top of the Platinum Chair. The Sunny Side course suits introductory-level disc golfers, while Cracker Jack is Championship Pro Style.
