Escape to the Southern Rocky Mountains this Fall to take in the brilliant shades of autumn as the aspen leaves turn gold.

Cross-country Hiking & Biking

Other nearby trails include the 23-mile South Boundary Trail, which starts just a few miles south of Angel Fire in the Carson National Forest and endless hiking trails in the Cimarron Canyon.

Scenic Chairlift Ride
You can take in the beautiful views as our chairlift rides take you to the summit of our mountain at 10,677 feet. Either hit one of the hiking trails, play disc golf or enjoy food and drinks at the Summit Smokehouse. When you are ready to head back, you have the option of either hiking down or riding the chairlift back to the base area. The views on the way down allow you to see the entire valley and shows views of Wheeler Peak and Eagle Nest Lake State Park. You can take in the views every weekend through October 22.

The lake is open until the end of October, so gather the family and get in touch with nature at Angel Fire Resort’s Monte Verde Lake for some family time fishing, hiking, standup paddle boarding or paddle boating. There are plenty of picnic tables & an easy walking path surrounding the entire lake that every age can enjoy. Open until Oct. 31.

The views are spectacular and will leave you with unforgettable family memories for years to come. Angel Fire features easy access to over 50 miles of off-road trails through the Carson National Forest, and because each trail presents a different degree of driving difficulty, you are sure to find a trail that suits your ability.
