Fall time is the best time to get acquainted with the enchanting aspects of New Mexico. And what better place to start than Moreno Valley? Leave the rig in one of the luxurious spots at Angel Fire RV Resort, and hop in the car or in the saddle and explore everything we have to offer in our corner of autumnal paradise!
Ride the Chile Express & Hike Down
The leaves are starting to change in the mountains and we’re ready for some autumn color here at Angel Fire Resort. What’s the best way to see these beautiful fall colors? A quick ride up the Chile Express will bring you 2000 ft above the Moreno Valley where you will soak in panoramic views of the Southern Rockies and gorgeous fall time flavors. If you’re feeling adventurous, the Enlightenment Trail is an advanced hiking trail that spans over 2000 vertical feet, from the summit of Angel Fire Resort to the base accessed by the Chile Express. The lift is open for weekends only until November 1st, or when the snow flies.
Disc Golf at the Summit
Capture the best views around and challenge your friends to a round of disc golf at the Summit. The 18-hole disc golf course features both amateur and pro tee pads. The course snakes through a scenic hike at 10,677 ft. with the last whole bringing you back to the central summit area. Course maps, disc rentals and scorecards are available in the Ticket Office at the base of the Chile Express chairlift. Call (575) 377-4383 for any additional information.
Fall Time Golf With the Pros
Grab your clubs and tee off at Angel Fire Resort’s unspoiled golf course. The par 72, 6,653 yard, 18-hole golf course meanders through groves of aspen, spruce and pine. Autumn at the golf course is particularly special, with tee times plenty and an uncrowded country club. Get prepped for a birdie by practicing on the new putting green, installed this June. Reserve your spot by calling (575) 377-4488.
Paddle Around the Lake
Just because summer is over, that doesn’t mean the water is off limits. Monte Verde Lake is your premiere spot for fishing, paddling and even walking the dog. Fishing equipment, bait, stand-up paddle boards, pedal boats, two-person kayaks, and fishing boats are available for rent. In fact, the fun continues at Monte Verde Lake on weekends through the end of October.
Bike Park Fall Time Adventure
Ah yes, autumn. Our favorite time of year for a crisp, morning ride through golden glades, kicking up leaves! But seriously, it is gorgeous this time of year here at Angel Fire Resort. Not only are we extending the season through November 1st, but we’re psyched on all the trail work completed over the summer. One of our favorite trails, Hungry Hippo, is going through a complete transformation and should be ready to ride in October! The new rebuild of Boulder Dash, more pro and more flow, will turn up the heat on your morning ride!
