Located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Wheeler Peak Wilderness spans 18,897 acres of land northeast of Taos, New Mexico. Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico, is the highlight of this area rising to 13,161 feet. This feature attracts many visitors, making Wheeler Peak Wilderness the most heavily used area within Carson National Forest. Designated by Congress in 2014, the Columbine-Hondo Wilderness is located in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This wild mountain basin has a total of 44,698 acres. The northern boundary, along the Red River, sits at the base of a now extinct supervolcano known as Questa Caldera. The Columbine-Hondo contains the headwaters of the Rio Hondo and Red River, both major tributaries of the upper Rio Grande in northern New Mexico. Latir Peak Wilderness spans a total of 20,000 acres north of Questa, New Mexico within the Questa Ranger District of Carson National Forest. This remote area contains deep forest cover interrupted by meadows and streams with alpine tundra and alpine lakes found at higher elevations. Cabresto Lake is the most popular access point to this area. From the lake, the Lake Fork Trail follows Cabresto Creek north to Heart Lake, Baldy Mountain, and Latir Mesa
