Beat the Heat! Taos, NM.

Taos is known for breathtaking sunsets, scenery and sweeping vistas.  During the winter the challenging terrain for both skiers and snowboarders of all levels draws visitors from near and far….what about during the summer?

The fact is there are few better places to escape the summer heat and enjoy the outdoors with the whole family than Taos, NM.  Taos Ski Valley is home to iconic peaks and hikes such as Wheeler Peak at 13,161 feet.  The trail starts practically outside the doors of BootDoctors® Taos and takes you to the summit of the highest peak in New Mexico.  Round trip the hike is about 7.5 miles and rewards hikers with endless photo worthy views, so don’t forget your camera!

Stop by BootDoctors® Taos to get all your hiking gear sorted and to grab a map to help lead you in the right direction.  We have hiking poles, shoes, clothing, backpacks, hydration and just about anything you could need to get out there and enjoy the cool mountain air. Feel free to pick our knowledgable staffs brains on their favorite trails; we aren’t shy about sharing the goods.

Stoked on hiking Wheeler Peak?  Check out this video from Hannah Kunkle as she and her family take on Wheeler Peak.  Just don’t follow her Dad’s lead or you might be in trouble with the rest of the family!

If you enjoyed the video from Hannah be sure to check out more of her videos here.

In addition to the Bull-of-the-Woods route you can also get to the top of Wheeler Peak by way of a shorter, albeit steeper, trail cut recently off of the Williams Lake trail.  Check with the staff at the store for all the details on this one.  Here are a few shots from along this route.
