Definitely one of my favorite trails in Red River! Goose Lake is beautiful and peaceful, well worth the trip! It is probably the most popular trail in the area, so expect lots of traffic. Seems like every time I visit, the restroom at the lake is closed.

This trail is completely inaccurate. Goose lake is an 8 mile hike. (16 miles there and back.) Needs to be changed so people don't hike 2.5 miles up the mountain thinking they'll make it to Goose lake.

Love this lake. It is so beautiful and well worth the time. Bring lots of water and a snack to eat by the lake.

This was a good trail but not at all accurate the lake is actually about eight miles in 16 miles round trip. Also be ready for some good inclines and lots of rocks as well as ATVs. I didn't make it to the lake but I look forward to trying again soon. Keep your eyes open for a small cave that was cool. I loved all the different kinds of flowers and the sound of the running water and birds when ATVs weren't flying past.

The trail was great but there was no lake. I would call it moderate to challenging
