Scenic Summer Chairlift

The Scenic Summer Chairlift ride is one of the more relaxing adventures you can have while in Red River. Platinum Chair, with three seats, takes you 1,600 vertical feet to the summit. There you will experience breathtaking views of the Carson National Forest, The Town of Red River, New Mexico native vegetation, and surrounding mountains. Amenities at the top include a disc golf course, hiking trails, and The Tip Restaurant, which offers food, beer, and wine. We host live music on the deck during our Music on Top Concert Series most Saturdays. Check our events calendar for musicians and the dates of Music on Top.
