The Gorgeous Lake Trail In New Mexico You’ll Want To Take This Summer

When the weather is beautiful in the Land of Enchantment, one of the best activities is to get outside and hit one of our numerous, incredible hiking trails. This lake trail is situated within the Pecos Wilderness near Santa Fe, and is one of the more accessible lakes within our forests. While this trail is rated as moderate, bring your best hiking boots as there is a bit of an incline. You’ll be rewarded for your hard work with breathtaking views throughout this lake trail in New Mexico, and especially at the end of the trail when you reach the natural oasis that is Stewart Lake. Let’s get ready for an other-worldly hiking experience deep within the Pecos Wilderness.
