  • We rarely take our two small bagels on 2 mile uphill hikes in the winter, but they absolutely loved this hike! It took us about 45 mins - 1 hour from the time we left our vehicle to reach the lake. Th...  more »

  • Great hike! I took my 14 year old son it was challenging be we did it with no problem. Takes about a hour to get to the lake
  • Breathtaking... You won't regret the hike.
  • First things first: Bring the proper equipment (hiking boots, walking sticks, jacket) the terrain is constantly changing as you hike up. Do not expect this to be a quick hike. You're hiking about 2000ft vertically. Could take anywhere from 1.5-2hrs. Bring water and fuel for your body! After the long hike, you'll get to the Lake and you will stop worrying about how your legs are aching and how your back is sweating. You'll embrace this place and it's beauty completely. And of course, you'll take plenty of pictures.
  • Did this hike about a month ago. 2 miles up, 2 miles down... celebrate with a beer at the bottom at the pub!
  • The hiking here is awsome, the view of lake surrounded by so picturesque view makes this a place a must visit of you are in and around TAOS new maxico
