A beautiful hike with great mountain views and visits to alpine lakes. It will start with a stiff climb up to the Continental Divide where you will be able to see the craggy peaks of the Weminuche. Then circle clockwise around to Verde Lake and Highland Mary Lakes.
4WD/HC to get the last mile or so to the trailhead. Limit 15 due to the wilderness regulations. Carpool $8. Dogs ok.
