We will utilize 2-3 guides on a 2 hour trip with a maximum of 20 participants. Trips will be on new 2022 Polaris 4WD UTVs. We will start our trip at 1pm. We will meet at our business, Weezie’s Wild Rides at 718 E. Main and load up in the UTVs, then drive down Main Street of scenic Red River before heading north to Mallette Park. We will then head to Trail Canyon, which is the trailhead for Greenie Peak. Greenie Peak is at 11,300 feet and is the highest peak in New Mexico for motorized travel. There are panoramic views in every direction. The terrain can be rocky and rugged in spots, but our vehicles are well equipped and safe. Participants are invited to be a passenger or a driver, whatever their comfort level may be. Our company often has customers with limited mobility and one model of our UTVs have an easy side entry and large cargo area if the customer utilizes a wheelchair or service animal.
