Highland Mary Trail Loop is a 8.1 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Silverton, CO that features a lake and is only recommended for very experienced adventurers. The trail is primarily used for hiking and walking and is accessible from June until October.
We hiked out to Highland Mary Lakes on Saturday -such a beautiful hike! The next morning we went out to fish verde lake and caught several fish. We also passed lots of fisherman coming from that lake. We almost lost the trail coming from the lake but after some backtracking, we realized you had to follow the posts. After leaving the lake there were some incredible views! My favorite part of the trip. After you loop around and towards the end it is a pretty steep decline. I'm glad that we hiked down it instead of up it, but still very hard on the joints!
Went in August and the trail was in good shape!
