    What to bring:

    • Standard day hike gear.

    • Rain gear


    Typical Wheeler Weather
    August is a rainy month with almost daily afternoon showers. Be prepared.  Campers will need rain gear and a tent if staying overnight. Daytime temperatures in the summer are often in the 60’s but can drop dramatically when a storm moves in.

    Access to Williams Lake Trail 62:
    From Taos travel approximately 4 miles north on U.S. Hwy. 64 to the junction of NM State Highway 150.  Proceed east on Hwy 150 to Taos Ski Valley.   Continue through the ski area parking lot through the Twining Campground and right onto Twining Road.  Switchback will take you to Kachina Road.  The Williams Lake hiker’s parking lot is past the Bavarian Chalet, the Kachina #4 chairlift and a Black Diamond Espresso coffee shop on Kachina Road.

    Directions to Williams Lake Trail Head:
    The Williams Lake trailhead is 5 minutes past the coffee shop and the parking area.  Follow the ski run to the trail head.  From the trailhead to Williams Lake is about 3/4 of a mile.

    Note:  The NM Highway Department announced Hwy 68 between Epanola and Taos, which can normally be driven in about an hour and a half, is being repaved so expect delays.  The “High Road to Taos,” Hwy 76, is open but is windy and a longer distance.  The High Road takes approximately two hours from Espanola.
