The Williams Lake area is just so beautiful. We were there early in the morning, and it was so peaceful. If you are hiking to the summit of Wheeler Peak, Williams Lake is well worth the short diversion before ascending Wheeler.
The road to the trailhead is a little confusing in places. It travels through a residential area, and there's a lot of construction. Drive through the Taos Ski Village parking area to a road on the far end (Twining Road, not marked as I recall). Follow it just past a small lake, and turn left on Zap's Road. Take a right at the next T intersection. A parking lot for the trailhead is not far from there.
