This trail hits most of the high points in the Pecos Wilderness. Peaks: Santa Fe Baldy, Redondo (above Lake Johnson), Pecos Baldy, and the Truchas Peaks. Lakes: Katherine, Stewart, Johnson, Pecos Baldy, Truchas, Lost Bear Lake is a short side trail. Other: Trail Riders Ridge, Pecos Falls, Beatty Flats. Best to start on Tuesday or Wednesday due to high usage at Lake Katherine (if you want to camp there). An especially spectacular trip when the aspens are turning.
