"At 12,115 feet, Lobo Peak is the highest point in the small range of mountains that lies between the Rio Hondo and the Red River. The mountains rise abruptly from the bordering canyons, forcing the trail to Lobo Peak to gain almost 4,000 feet in 4.5 miles. Lobo Peak’s isolation from other high points makes the views from the top unique, taking in the Taos Plateau and Rio Grande Gorge to the west, the Latir Peaks to the north, and the Wheeler Peak area to the south. Start up the Manzanita Canyon Trail 58, which begins on a dirt road. Pass through a gate, then bear left to parallel the creek in Manzanita Canyon. At mile .8, where water from a spring drains along the route, the road becomes a true trail."
