  • 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 »
  • This is a bit over two miles. The day we hiked there were some slick spots and some snow. Both made the trip more challenging but it was worth the effort. The lake is nice but the mountains surround i...  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

Where to stay in Taos

Taos offers a wealth of accommodations right in town and in the surrounding area. Plenty of small inns, bed and breakfasts, and hotels lie in and around the business district, but your options greatly expand when you consider renting a small house or an apartment. Where you stay depends on what you come for. If you want to use Taos as a base for seeing local sites, opt for accommodation within the city limits. If you plan to spend most of your time in the mountains, the Valdez and Arroyo Seco areas are convenient. Staying between these areas and downtown puts you close to the Taos Pueblo Indian Lands.
