Nice little trail right in town, for summer

Good one-mile trail for almost all levels of walkers/hikers, never far from the river and sight of town. Also a good place for trail running. Connects to pathways on the ski runs... read more

This trail has nice views of the river and is a moderate climb. It is easily accessed right from town .It is an interpretative trail.

I highly recommend this trail regardless of your fitness level. If you can walk unassisted then you can do this trail.

As a group of fat old people I can't tell you how much we appreciated this trail. We aren't able to go trekking through the woods like we used to but this was the next best thing. It is a fairly level paved path that follows the river through town. It even had benches for those of us who need... More

Our family and our dogs have enjoyed this trail for 50 years. We visit Red River every summer, for a few weeks, and take many walks per day, along the nature trail. Peaceful, beautiful and you will typically see a few deer while walking that usually eat out of your hands!

Good one-mile trail for almost all levels of walkers/hikers, never far from the river and sight of town. Also a good place for trail running. Connects to pathways on the ski runs that can add some distance to a hike/walk.

The trail ran directly behind the hotel and the sound of the river running was certainly peaceful and refreshing. It was nice to see the mother duck with her babies and the deer wondered up and down the trail. All manner of birds gather around the trail as well.

4 miles round trip through the wooded area behind town. 200 foot elevation change. It was wonderful to have a minimum of informative sig mage along the way,to learn about what trees,and shrubs were along the way. Mostly in the shade, even footing. Kids over 6 would enjoy the hike. Bring water as always. Maybe a snack for the halfway... More

Rated # 1 so we decided to try this 2 mile trail with our 7 year old granddaughter. Thought she'd enjoy the interpretive signs. There were only 3 -- all broken so we couldn't read them. Trail very poorly marked -- often had trouble knowing which way to go. Much of the trail is next to or thru private property.... More

There’s a paved trail along the east side of the river and a single track dirt trail along the west bank with a good deal of short punchy climbs. Either is a nice relaxing walk with a great view. It’s not Central Park, but what else is?
