Snowy Range High Lakes Loop Professional Review and Guide
"The majority of hikers who start at the West Lake Marie Trailhead go west and head up the trail on the direct route to the summit of Medicine Bow Peak. Weather permitting, you will come back that way. For now, however, take the paved trail from the north end of the parking lot and parallel the highway as you follow the east shore of gorgeous Lake Marie. Backed by the towering cliffs along the ridge south of Medicine Bow Peak and rimmed with wildflowers and subalpine firs, this large lake is well worth some time to admire even though it is right beside the busy highway and quite crowded."
