Guided Hikes and Full Moon Hikes

Taos Ski Valley is a hikers paradise. There are many hiking trails to suit all abilities - from moderate 4 mile hikes to the challenge of tackling the 16 mile hike to Wheeler Peak. Guided hikes are available with knowledgeable guides. On a guided hike you will learn about the flora and fauna, herbs, medicinal plants and history of this beautiful area.

The free guided full moon hike is 2 miles each way with moderate exertion. The hike can take a few hours so we recommend the ages of 12 and over. Hikers meet at Hiker Parking at the times below. Please call if you would like any further information (575) 776-1413 and check the calendar for the full moon hike dates.
