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.

Beautiful drive, but IT IS NOT AN OFF-ROAD TRAIL! It's basically a windy mountain paved road that eventually turns into dirt. You could make this drive in a Cadillac if you really wanted. Not worth it if you're looking for a Jeep trail.

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

There are two TRs. Start from Mentmore TR (west off exit 16, not exit 20). Kinda flat, but gets technical and some exposure. Can be a quick 5 mile ride or a 11 mile ride.

Easy out and back on well maintained dirt roads. Beautiful views.

birding

I am assuming this place is a wonderful place for birding during winter migration, as the signs in the park explain. The "trail" is a ~3 mile loop meant for driving(15mph) or hiking and is flat terrain with little shade. There are some small trails with viewing platforms for bird watching along the way, as well as plenty of places for picnicking and outdoor bathrooms, as well. I know I came in off season but saw some killdeer, roadrunner and wrens!

Very beautiful drive. Easy on my Xterra. The only problem I had was the cow patties everywhere and the low-life drunks who break their beer bottles all over the place and leave the boxes in the watering hole. Made me upset. Other than that, the drive was lovely.

this place is amazing ! Were first time jeepers looking for new adventures to conquer and this is a good one! I really suggest to bring a map or look at it on ur phone because there's so many roads that lead who knows where. luckily never got stuck but still got lost even with a map , lots of rocky climbing and hills and dirt roads!
