Overview
Old Mike Peak is one of a series of ridgeline peaks that exist along the same dominant ridgeline as Wheeler Peak, New Mexico's state high point. Old Mike offers some unique views from the Wheeler Peak Wilderness area and from a distance is a far more formidable looking peak than Wheeler.

Respect
Old Mike Peak also offers views to Blue Lake or Ba Whyea, a sacred site for the Taos Pueblo community. The one time contested lake is only accessible to tribal members and excursions by non tribal members is strictly forbidden. In fact, one hiking resource suggest refraining from taking pictures of the lake, especially, when it is being used for ceremonial purposes.
