Goat Hill (elevation 7,634 feet) - Raton, New Mexico


A Fun Thing To Do in Raton, New Mexico
Goat Hill is far from stunning compared to larger peaks in northern New Mexico, but it is a pretty place that overlooks Raton, New Mexico. Hike up the road for a hearty workout. Or drive up in any vehicle. Either way, this is a "must do" if you're spending any time in the county seat of Colfax County.

Directions: From N. 2nd Street, turn west on Moulton Avenue and follow it to its end. Then turn left and work your way to the top of Goat Hill.
