Nice trail to hike for something different. There are not many caves in the area. There are fish in the creek. Watch out for a bit of poison ivy along the trail. Leaves of three...let it be.

One of the few trails that open early in the Pecos Wilderness due to the southern exposure on Winsor Ridge. Beautiful aspen stands and some Gambel's oak for fall colors, and I've seen coyotes, deer, elk, and grouse, so it's a great trail for wildlife viewing. I've also heard turkey's in the trees. Stewart lake is beautiful, but not many places to camp because of the F.S. regulation of not being able to camp in the lake basin.

This was a fun and challenging hike. The first half is pretty easy but when you hit Williams Lakes it's all up hill and switchbacks. Lots of rocks so please wear ankle support. On the way back thunderstorms started so I lucked out. All in all great hike!

My husband and I hiked this with our six month old daughter in tow, beautiful scenery and we came across a few mule deer and some smaller wildlife also. The lake is gorgeous.
