It looks like the south section of Bull-of-the-Woods has been renamed the "Wheeler Peak Trail"

SwithichStandard Route

The description is a little unclear, but a trail has actually been built up from Williams Lake to the Summit. I believe it is no longer a scramble (on talus you can just walk the trail).

Williams Lake is also the standard route now as I was the only person of 20 or so that used the Bull-of-the-Woods route.

You're right. I just hiked down that way on Sept 10th. There is a very nice trail now that switches back through the talus from Williams Lake. I will update the page shortly. Thanks...

I'm planning a trip in September 2013. Is the Williams Lake trail to Wheeler Peak still being maintained? Thanks for info! Just joined this site.

The last section of trail that climbs to the summit is fairly new. I doubt that it has been maintained since they cut the trail. However, the Williams Lake Trail is the shortest route to the summit and it is considered the standard route. It's a very good, clear trail.

baskoNew Place Stay

The last time I hiked Wheeler Peak, I had a really hard time finding a good place to stay. Taos is not that close to the trailhead, so we chose to backpack into the lake.

Now there are some condos that were built right by the Williams Lake trailhead. You can start the hike straight from the condos and on the way back you can have a big beer at the Bavarian and not have to worry about driving afterwards.

I totally recommend considering these places to minimize driving and maximize fun and comfort!

I'm not sure if you are the owner of this condo but thanks for the link. Here's a link to other rental properties in the area for others to consider.

Hey guys, new to the site and am very excited to what I can discover out here. Does anyone happen to know what the weather is like there around March?

Hi - welcome to SummitPost!

March is typically the heaviest snow month but you never know on any given year. You should check conditions in the regional message forum for NM before your trip. One of the locals is more likely to see and respond to your inquiry there.
