Hiking in the Taos Ski Valley
Bull of the Woods Pasture
Distance: 1.8 miles
Elevation: ~9,450 – 10,900 ft
Bull of the Woods trailhead is located in the Taos Ski Valley – on the North side of the main parking area. The trail follows a beautiful mountain stream on one side which provides many ideal “snack stops” early on. It then opens up into meadows and finally, to the pasture itself.
At the 1.8 mile mark the trail splits off to Wheeler Peak on the right and Gold Hill on the left ( the sign to Gold Hill was a bit hidden). Both of these provide more challenging day hikes often with abundant wildlife. Expect snow on either of these trails before mid to late June.
