Details

This is a joint event (SM-DN). Walk or hike or snowshoe (depending on conditions) approximately 2.5 miles from winter gate closure on paved but unplowed Brainard Lake Road to Mitchell Lake Trailhead.  Then ascend scenic trail (approximate net elevation gain 840' from THD) to this impressive lake towered over by Mt Toll and Paiute Pk. Not an "easy" day!  Refreshment stop after outing if there is interest.

Notes

Must be able to secure snowshoes to your pack when not in use.  Trekking poles with snow baskets and gaiters are necessary.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
