This Crystal Lake Hike In New Mexico Needs To Be On Your Bucket List
When the weather is beautiful in the Land of Enchantment, one of the best activities is to get outside and hit one of our numerous, incredible hiking trails. This crystal clear lake trail is situated within Carson National Forest by Red River and is one of the more popular lakes within our forests. While this trail is rated as moderate, bring your best hiking boots as there is a bit of an incline and it’s not a short hike. You’ll be rewarded for your hard work with breathtaking views along the way, and especially at the end of the trail when you reach the natural oasis that’s waiting. Let’s get ready for an other-worldly hiking experience in Red River.
