Hiking

Sipapu is a great place to hike, with views at the top of many of the ski trails. It’s strenuous but worth it. The most gradual hike up is to take Sassafras. Its switchbacks make it a good starting place for hiking our mountain. Nearby is the Gallegos Peak to Flechado Canyon hike that runs the ridge across from Sipapu. This 6-mile hike gives you views of all the ski runs and is a great bird’s eye view of the resort. 

Also nearby is the Agua Pietra trail to Indian Lake, The trail begins at the Agua Pietra campground goes long about five miles. The trailhead is at the corral, just follow the path to the Indian Trail sign and turn left for a steady, hearty climb to Indian Lake, a small alpine lake. 

A gentler hike is the Comales Canyon Trail. If you do an out and back hike, it’s a gentler option for families. 

Good descriptions of nearby trails can be found on the Taos News website.

Hike to the Top of Lift 4

This beautiful hike is a bit more challenging and takes an hour and a half. Use the access roads to hike up to the top of Lift 4 for views up the canyon. Hike back down through No Caboose or Worm for added fun! Hiking down ski runs gives a unique perspective of walking through a park in the middle of a forest.
