[cdt-l] Weminuche Details
Is there a passable trail (or route) between the CDT and Highland Mary
Lakes? Is it passable (next summer) by human foot and canine paw?
My mapping resources suggest two routes east to west, one immediately
north and one immediately south of Peak 12841, about two miles south
on the CDT from Stony Pass. What I can't tell from those resources is
the terrain: polished granite, boulder field, talus, or what.
On a larger perspective the point of the query is to plot a route from
the Kite Lake area to Silverton. There is the obvious route down
Cunningham Creek and via Howardsville (six miles walking, seven miles
driving), and there is of course the option to flag the train at Elk
Park, but somehow swinging through the Highland Mary lake and mine
area (ten miles walking) seems like it might be more enjoyable.
Comments on this overview?
Thanks in advance for any first-hand knowledge or pointers to reliable
field information (dare I hope for a photo?).
