Highland Mary Lakes
The Highland Mary Lakes are a group of seven above-timberline lakes on the northwestern side of the Weminuche Wilderness Area. This trail passes by the two largest Highland Mary Lakes as well as the nearby Verde Lakes. But, in my opinion, the most interesting part of the hike is the second half of the trail. From the Verde Lakes the trail turns east and climbs to the top of the Continental Divide. It then follows the Continental Divide Trail for 1.0 mile before turning west again for the descent back to the trailhead. All but the first and last mile of the hike are above timberline.
