Ascent Trip Report

From Questa take NM 563 (Cabresto Rd.) to Forest Rd. 134 to Forest Rd. 134A (a rough road--I've seen passenger cars on it, but really more suitable for 4wd or pickup truck). From Cabresto Lake trailhead it is roughly five miles to Heart Lake on an easy to follow trail. Wandered around a bit on the slopes above the lake. The Latir Peak Wilderness gets far less traffic than nearby Wheeler Peak Wilderness or the Columbine-Hondo area.
