Location

Popular trail - deservedly so - to a jewel of a mountain lake at the foot of Mt. Toll in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Great views of Mt. Audobon, and Pauite Peak. Excellent chance of sighting moose and MANY wildflowers. 

 

Roundtrip trail is 6 miles BUT chances are that the immediate parking area will be full by the time we get there, so we'll have to park 1/2 mile away at Brainard Lake, possibly. Therefore, I have isted this as a 7 mile RT hike.
