One of the most amazing views when you get to the lake. If you plan on going past the lake, then you need to have "real hiking gear and equipment." Otherwise just straight up to the lake is a fairly easy climb if you are in shape. Kid friendly.
Hiked Wheeler many times from different directions. Be sure to plan your trip and if you have the time, make a 2-3 trip of it. If you are short on time, head out of Red River, drive to one of the parking areas and hike up to some of the lakes, for shorter trip.
This is a great climb that is not overly difficult. Be sure to be prepared for weather changes and have water. You may feel the altitude difference as you climb.

We knew we weren't going to have time to get to the Peak (had massages scheduled for 5pm) but had the goal of making it to Lost Lake! Made it! Read reviews and asked the locals which trail was better! Middle Fork Lake or Lost Lake? Lost Lake was the consensus! We see why! When the trees parted for the... 更多
This was a nice hike/climb. 4 miles up, 4 miles back down..The first 2 miles not to bad, you can stop at Williams lake to rest. At the lake area you make the trail switch to go up to the peak.. 1st mile is through the forest, not to bad on the elevation, but about the last mile it comes... 更多
