Silver Plume, CO
The popular hike to Herman Lake starts on an old sawmill road through thick forest. The trail then wanders through fields of colorful wildflowers, with spectacular views of the Continental Divide. Most of the trail doubles as a section of the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. A last steep pitch takes you to treeline, where the trail mellows on the final stretch to Herman Lake, nestled in a bowl at 12,000 feet with Pettingell Peak towering above.
