Here is the trail report for Lower Highland Lakes (distance, elevation change, etc). Sadly what I thought was a two mile hike around the lake was actually a measly one mile hike. I would say I'm disappointed in myself but I was terribly sick. Now I feel like I have to go hiking soon so I can make it up to myself.
Lower Highland Lakes, 1.0 miles, Elevation Start: 8,500 ft - End 8,600 ft, Elevation Change 100 ft.
