This hike is intended for those with lots of stamina, but not necessarily lots of speed. Be forewarned, however, it is a very long hike with significant vertical. Starting at the Highland Mary trailhead we will pass through the western edge of Spencer Basin on good trail, then off trail up a ridge and over point 13,434 ft., over a pass between Rhoda and Whitehead Peaks, continue to Verde Lake off-trail, then hook up with the Continental Divide Trail to form a big loop back to the trailhead. Most of the route is rolling tundra with exceptional views. Carpool $11. 4WD/HC required. Limit 10. No dogs.
