Taos Ski Valley

Start of the trail had a lot of road maintenance nearby and was quite noisy, but that disappeared after the first half mile. Trail is fairly steep, but almost fully shaded and lots of places to take breaks. Was very busy for a Thursday. We saw a lot of dogs on the trail, almost all off leash. Lake at the top was pretty and the dogs enjoyed it.

All in all, I enjoyed the hike and would recommend it, but preferred the hike we did to Middle Fork Lake the next day a little bit more. Similar hike, but not as busy and the lake was a bit nicer.
