HALF DAY FAMILY FUN

YOU CAN DO A LOT IN HALF A DAY

For those short on time, these are the classic Taos must-dos:

8:30AM

KICK OFF YOUR DAY WITH A HIKE TO WILLIAMS LAKE

The sooner you start your hike, the cooler it will be. This intermediate-level, four-mile round trip hike from The Bavarian is forested with aspen, Englemann and blue spruce, western white fir, and rarely seen red fir and bristlecone pine. Once there you’ll find lush meadows are colored with countless varieties of wildflowers and plants.

10:30AM

AFTER YOUR HIKE, SNEAK IN A MID-MORNING BALLOON RIDE

Floating isn’t just for water, Taos is a great place for floating in the air. Hot air balloon rides above the Rio Grande Gorge are magical, thrilling experiences that will take your breath away. As the sun rises over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you’ll have the best views of the Taos Mesa and see amazing geologic formations from 800 feet above the Rio Grande.
