Divide Lakes Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Expect to see wildflowers on this hike in midsummer; you may see animal life throughout the hiking season. The first 2-plus miles make a nice day hike; otherwise, it’s a two-day backpack. Trips to the Granite Lake Trail and East Fork Weminuche Trail are also possible with the following trip information.

Begin hiking Weminuche Creek Trail 592. You’ll cross a large meadow of false hellebore and stunning summer wildflowers, including Colorado’s state flower (the columbine) and wild irises. Aspens and pines create a lush canopy. The trail remains fairly level for the first 0.8 mile, then descends moderately along the slope. Long, lazy switchbacks make the grade much easier. Along the way there’s a stream crossing or two."
