Good for mountain biking. Not as good for hiking, but ok if you're in a pinch.

Nice trail with great views, but not many views until very near the top. Trail is also tough to find in rain, so go when it's nice out.

Pecos Wilderness Area Trails

I love the Pecos Wilderness! I always use Windsor Trail from the Ski Santa Fe parking lot to get to the Pecos. The switchbacks on Windsor before the Pecos are pretty tough, but it is worth it. The Pecos is home to Lake Katherine, Nambe Lake, and many others. It is a beautiful wilderness filled with Aspens and stunning views. I suggest this area to everyone. If you are new to the area try Lake Nambe for a great day hike. It is difficult at points, but so worth it. I am an out of shape amateur hiker and I can handle most of the trails in the Pecos.

Wife and I did most of the trail. When the sign says "Steeper Route", it means it, at least for a couple of 70+ year olds! But we enjoyed the hike and the views from the trail. Lots of people and loose dogs, too.

Buckman: Otowi Peak

The Buckman parking area has been "improved" and there are now three easily passed iron pipe fences and gates between parking and in the sandy arroyo that is the key to finding the trail.

Great hike! Steady climb, but not strenuous. Just high altitude for this sea level gal!
