Trail Overview

This is a roundabout way of getting from Red River, NM to Greenie Peak. It departs town as a wide, two-lane gravel road, and passes several dispersed camping areas before starting to climb. There are other routes to Greenie Peak that are more direct that split off from this route. About halfway up, there are two steep sections that have been badly washed and rutted out, making it unsuitable for regular SUVs. These are the only steep or washed out sections. Cell service is fair to good to the top, and the view from Greenie Peak is Eagle Nest Lake to the south, Valle Vidal to the east, Wheeler Peak to the southwest and Taos to the west. Red River is OHV friendly on all roads in town except the state highway that runs through town, but you can get anywhere on the side roads.


There are several steep, rutted-out areas.
