Grays and Torreys Peaks are the two highest points on the Continental Divide. Torreys was named after John Torrey, an early nineteenth-century botanist who is best remembered for his work in classifying North American flora. Grays Peak was named in recognition of Asa Gray, also a well known botanist in the mid 1800s, whose research on variations in plant species provided important evidence in support of Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. The Grays Peak Trail has recently been designated as a National Recreational Trail, and it is one of the best maintained of any of the fourteener trails. The trail approaches the peak through a gorgeous glacial valley with Kelso Mountain (13,164 ft.) on one side and Mount Edwards (13,850 ft.) on the other. The valley ends at the foot of the Continental Divide below the saddle connecting Grays Peak with Torreys.
