DestinationsTaos, New Mexico
Discover Williams Lake in all its glory in the summertime, an intermediate-level, four-mile round trip hike from The Bavarian. The valley is forested with aspen, Englemann and blue spruce, western white fir, and rarely seen red fir and bristlecone pine. Lush meadows are colored with countless varieties of wildflowers and plants. Hiking conditions are great, the trail is in excellent shape.
Conquer New Mexico's highest peak. Set up camp at this 13,161-foot summit which can be accessed by the Williams Lake Trail. Get a very early start for this expert level hike. Backcountry camping is allowed without a permit, at least 300 feet away from streams and lakes. Keep your eyes peeled for Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, mule deer and elk. Wildflowers are blooming!
