Not quite “easy” but definitely recommended!

This trail starts out easy but has ascents and descents on a narrower than expected trail that belies its easy rating. The trail follows by a small stream that runs parallel with Red River and the mule deer and birds are abundant. There are several points with great views of Red River and the surrounding mountains.

Toward the end of the trail pay attention as it switch backs up the mountain side and the sign showing the switch back can be easily missed as you look the other direction at the view of Red River. I missed it going out and had to pick up the trail coming back. There are several side trails and erosion has changed the trail from the one listed on this app but otherwise it is easy to follow if you look for the signs.
