Great hike just an hour from Taos. With a walk around the lake it came in a 10.2 miles. We only saw one other hiker this day. Nice steady climb to the lake with only a couple of steeper spots. Hike is mostly through forest with no big views until you reach the lake. Nice stream next to the trail throughout. Lots of Aspen trees which could make this a great fall hike. Lake at the top is very nice and a great place to stop for lunch.
