Altitude 4012m a.s.l
At 4012m above sea level, Wheeler Peak is the highest mountain in New Mexico. Whether backpacking or dayhiking, Wheeler Peak offers a spectacular outdoor experience.
Late May through November is considered the best time to climb. Winter storms can occur as late as May, however, storms, rain, hail, and snow can occur in any month. The Bull-of-the-Woods trail is considered the safest winter ascent route, with the west face of Wheeler being an avalanche hazard. Highly recommend getting a very early start in climbing Wheeler Peak. Thunderstorms are an extreme danger in the afternoonn.
