Really enjoyed this hike. Super easy access and interesting views all along, Pretty steep in places. Some of the signs are a little misleading in spots, it looks like the arrow is pointing to what is actually a different trail. Did thos on Thanksgiving in a t-shirt and shorts. Love Santa Fe weather,

Don't trust google maps getting there. Be sure to go directly to trailhead. That's your only real access. The trail in is nice and easy. keep an eye out for bighorns and petroglyphs. The pools are roomy, with three options at different temperatures. Well worth the time and effort. Expect company and enjoy the river.

Bull of the Woods Trail

This trail starts at the Taos Ski Valley parking at roughly 9400 feet. It's 2 mi. up to Bull of the Woods meadow at 10,800. The first mile is a bit steep, but overall an easy hike if you're used to the altitude. The trail contiues on bypassing Bull of the Wood Mountain, and reaching Fraser Mt. in a bit over 4 Mi. from there it is another 3 + mi. to Wheeler Peak.

Devisadero Peak

Devisadero Loop Trail 108

According to the Forest Service website, Devisadero means a "lookout point or place", and there are a lot of good mountain and valley views worth taking pictures of. After a snowfall, one side gets a little tricky. We made it to the fork and then went right. This led directly over mountain tops to the top of the peak. There are several signs along the path so you can make sure that you are still on the trail which is handy when some of the trail is obscured by snow. Then after getting to Devisadero peak, where there is a pair of seats made out of stones that are pretty cool, the trail continues down the side of the mountain and then makes you traverse four or five mountain sides. This part is mostly downhill and shaded. In the snowy months, this part of the trail is covered with a pretty good layer of snow. Be prepared for snow and muddy spots.
The trail was a little over 6 miles long. There is a series of geocaches along the trail too, but the probability of them being covered by snow is high. We only managed to find three of the current six due to the snowfall. We saw some rabbit trails, but not any actual rabbits. It took us about five hours for the whole trip, figuring in time for photos and finding the caches. There is a parking lot across the street from the trailhead that also has a bathroom, but it was locked (or frozen shut) when we were there.
All in all, a good solid hike.

Bandelier is great! The Main Loop Trail is very easy but has terrific views. Although I don't have kids I'd say it is definitely easy enough for families.

Nice little hike. The three trails in this little park are great for about an our trip. the first trail rises about 700 ft and can be a bit nerving if it is windy (and it was).

My children and I went this weekend and had a great time. It was a crisp 44 degrees and the sun was shining. I had no idea the 10,000 foot elevation would have such an effect on my breathing.

Pecos River Valley Challenge

This area is nice but the best is just up the Pecos River. There is a spot where the river runs under the road. There is a swimming hole and rock jumping area called Pink Rock. Ask the locals about it. Love the area. Warning-water is cold in spring!
