Enchanted Forest Cross Country Ski Area

Hiking, Mountain Biking, Camping…

During the summer and fall months, we are not formally open and in the base lodge every day. However, Enchanted Forest is a beautiful destination for hiking or mountain biking, Bobcat Pass Wilderness Adventures offers Horseback riding adventures from their nearby base, and now, KWK Events can plan a gorgeous mountain wedding at our site!

For day hikes or fat-tire rides, pick up a copy of our trail map to the left of our entrance door, or plan an upscale camping adventure in one of our yurts!

COVID-19 & the State of New Mexico

July 1 update from Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham:

  • Out-of-state residents can rent one of our yurts if they stay at Enchanted Forest and do not go into town: The Governor’s Executive Order requires out-of-state visitors to self-isolate or self-quarantine for at least 14 days, or for the duration of their stay, whichever is shorter.You will need to bring masks. We suggest you bring all your food and use pay-at-the-pump gas stations along the way.

Gorgeous views

“What a great time and beautiful area! Gorgeous views from the yurt site and day hike trails. Perfect distance from any other houses to be secluded but also not too far for a quick excursion back to the car and Red River if desired. All the expected basics that were included in the listing were there at the yurt…. Highly recommend to anyone considering.”

Definitely… should visit

“The day I biked here there was hardly anyone here and I had views of Wheeler Peak and back into Red River all to myself. Additionally, there are the yurts you can rent and hike/ski/bike into during any season. This is definitely a chunk of the New Mexico wilderness you should visit. I will definitely keep coming back.”

Cute little hideaway

“Be ready to educate your family regarding yurts. A great hike to the top of the ski area. A cute little hideaway complete with bunk beds, wood burning stove, propane camp stove and lantern. Enjoy eating around the firepit or around the large dining room table inside. It’s not really roughing it unless you aren’t fond of outhouses.”
