We hiked Trail 56 (Red River side) to Horseshoe Lake and then Trail 91 to Wheeler Peak. The road to the trailhead has many deep potholes-4x4. This was my first overnight hiking experience and I would definitely recommend it to prepared beginners. Trail 56 has a gentle grade, there are plenty of stream crossings to filter water, and there are several scenic views. The only "tough" spot was at a small portion of Tr91 above Horseshoe which was rocky. Despite the rain we made it to Wheeler and the clouds broke~ Beautiful! Bring your camera! Good Luck and Good Hiking!

This is a nice overview. Hiked the Lost Lake and Horseshoe Lake route up to Wheeler Peak. Very beautiful route. Tent camping is available in 6 pre-determined sites at Lost Lake and at Horseshoe Lake. Lakes are stocked.

We hiked from Taos Ski Valley to Williams Lake, Trail No. 62. Wildflowers were abundant and marmot were scampering. One poor little fellow left nothing but his face in the trail indicating mountain lion activity in the area. A short, but worthwhile, moderate climb to the lake and its surrounding peaks. Wheeler looks so attainable from here!
