Wheeler Peak is about a 4.5 mile hike at the Taos Ski Valley and it is not for the faint at heart.
For someone in a top shape, this advanced level hike will take about 6 hours to complete.
It is a beautiful and challenging hike and it is totally worth it.
The highest point in the state of New Mexico at about 13,167 feet up offers a 360 degree stunning view that will take your breath away.
What we recommend: hike up to Williams Lake (about 1 hr), have a picnic and a cold plunge in the lake. If you decide to keep on to Wheeler Peak, be ready for another 5 more hours of intense hiking :)
