The Latir Peak and Wheeler Peak Wilderness Map produced by the US Forest Service contains information on access roads, trails, campsites, terrain, and points of interest within the Latir Peak and Wheeler Peak Wilderness areas. All wilderness maps contain contour lines, a topographic quad index and contact phone numbers, and the vast majority contain planning tips and descriptions of the terrain.
This remote area has deep forest cover interrupted only by pleasant meadows and alpine tundra on the northern portion’s Latir Mesa. With three peaks exceeding 12,500 feet in elevation, including a portion of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Latir Wilderness showcases the very finest of New Mexico’s high country.
