Great hike with the doggies. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen and have sunglasses. Bring plenty of water for you and your pets. Please, please pick up your dog poop!! If you don’t you’ll ruin these parks for the rest of the responsible pet owners!!

I knew this trail wasn't going too be easy, but the snow made for some heavy breathing and sore legs. Beautiful! Stunning! Peaceful! Serene! All those things and more. Make sure and download the map layer, and check it frequently. I ran out of time and wasn't able to complete the last 0.5mi. I'll be back..,, but I'll probably wait for summer.

Beautiful trails with well maintained desert greenery. This trail is in the middle of Pancho Villa state park. Beautiful area not too far from a gas station. Complete with a visitors center. Take a few steps and it doesn’t even feel like you are in the middle of a town.

Snowshoed on 1/11/2020. Great trail once you find the start! You have to actually cross across the ski traffic at lift 4. Continue up to the left, you’ll feel like you’re going up one of the ski runs, stay to the sides out of the way of skiers but you’re going the right way! You’ll see a little wooden cabin and that’s where the trail actually starts. The first 3/4 of the trail is through a beautiful pine forest marked on the trees by blue circles. If you see the blue marker you’ve made it to the trail! The incline isn’t too bad but you might be out of breath if you aren’t used to the elevation. At the top the forest opens up and there are STUNNING views of the peaks, including Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico. The trail was pretty packed down. We used snowshoes but didn’t need them, you’d be fine with Yaktrax or microspikes.

First mile of the hike is the best, heading north through the canyon. We went around 2 pm and it was already shady. would recommend going earlier in the day during the winter to be in the sun. one thing to note - it's about 7.5 miles of washboard road to get there. Not a big deal, but be prepared for the bumps...

It’s White Sands....what’s not spectacular about any hike you do here? This one was very secluded and had amazing views of the dunes and plants and the distant mountains. Fantastic hike.

Stunning! Had 2 dogs with me and wore regular winter boots on 1/4/20. Nice packed snow on trail. Crowded.

Short, scenic trail. I stopped here to stretch my legs and take my dog on a walk while we were driving up I-25.

State Highpoint #15 for me and possibly my favorite one to date. Pictures posted... just wow. My parents (65 and 60 years old) did this with me with minimal training back home in Pennsylvania beforehand. We got great weather and were able to take it slow. Round trip was about 8 hours (about 5 up and 3 down).

Beautiful hike through the forest, and the lake was pretty as well. If you get to the lake and are still looking for a challenge you can backtrack slightly and continue up to the top of Wheeler Peak which I HIGHLY recommend.

Great easy loop. Some hills to get your heart rate going but not a problem. The views were great! Kids went on the sleds at the beginning of the trail then stored them for the hike. Didn’t do any of the off shoots but kind of wish we did one now since it was a shorter hike. Drove the rest of the road to the back of the park. Plenty of places to stop and sled.

Dec 31. Snow is still very fluffy and deep. I skinned on my splitboard most of the way up. There was no ski track to the summit. The summit did not look enjoyable to ski, as it was too rocky. Deep snow below tree line gave way to a thin snowpack due to wind sweeping. Avalanche risk seemed minimal at the time. No signs of bad snow on western faces. Northern and Eastern faces seemed more windloaded. Good snow. Fun trail. Fantastic views. If you are looking to do this, you’ll need snowshoes or skis.

we didn't make it too the hot springs, the river was too wide and cold, but the 3 miles we hiked in was very enjoyable. I would recommend it too strong hikers

This is a really pretty trail that I would definitely recommend if you only have a few hours in the park to explore. It is easy enough for a novice hiker in average shape, in my opinion, so long as you are comfortable climbing up/down sand dunes. Just look for the orange sticks with the spades to stay on the "trail." It took us about an hour to finish, and we stopped to take pictures a lot. We started walking around 8:30 am and there was hardly anyone out there - much different than the late afternoon/evening hours (we stopped by at sunset the night before, and the park was slammed). Wear sunscreen. It was 28 degrees when we started our walk and we still got a little burned!

Climbed on Christmas day from Bavarian restaurant (4x4 access only) fresh snow and trail covered. Definitely need snowshoes/skins and splitboard/skis. the snow was 1.5meters deep in some areas. Fairly easy to get to the lake however from the lake to the summit is quite difficult. There is no discernable trail until one reaches the wind swept face above the treeline so until then you must make your own track through the wash or trees and the snow is often more than one meter deep. Once above the treeline the wind will be very strong you can pick out the zig-zag of the trail if you get a clear view. At the summit expect serious winds, the wind was strong enough to blow me over but I used my piolet to steady myself. Some break in the clouds provided a brief view. I brought my snowboard so I had a nice ride down and also saved a lot of time. On the ride down do not worry too much about the trail just keep left towards the ski lifts and you will intersect the trail. Good Luck

Did this trail on December 20, 2019. A LOT OF SNOW! There is a pretty well defined path up to the Williams Lake, pretty packed snow on the path. There are some places where you go into the snow knee high, but not too many. The real struggle is after the fork Williams Lake/ Wheeler Peak. The snow is not packed there, some places waist high. It is impassible without snow shoes. The path there is off trail, and if you follow it (as did I), you will end up in the valley (approx 12k ft) where it ends (probably it is where people give up and turn around). I chose to go up and a little to the right, and ended up on the Mt. Walter. From the top of Mt. Walter you will see the Wheeler Peak, and you can hike on the ridge. Very windy on top, protect your face from frostbite. I wouldn’t make it without snowshoes, waterproof pants, mittens, sunscreen, sunglasses, warm socks and a good jacket. Bring snacks that don’t freeze and take your water in thermos (my water bottles froze). Start early. Good luck! The trail is so beautiful!
