Trail Overview

Forest Service Road 54 and 54D is a gradual ascent from Cabresto Canyon to Greenie Peak in Carson National Forest. The windy road up the peak is rocky, steep in some areas, and very narrow. The trail is a popular route for adventure SxS riders in the area. 4WD vehicles with short wheelbases are highly recommended due to sharp turns and very narrow trails. There are wild chipmunks and birds including hummingbirds, some species of dove, and if you're lucky, bald eagles. At the top of Greenie Peak, you will be welcomed by a large open area with stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range and Red River Ski Resort in the nearby town of Red River, New Mexico. There are no toilets available on the trail. There are very few primitive campsite locations along the route due to the mountainous terrain and lack of pull-off locations resulting from the narrow trail.
