Mt Audubon is the 6th highest peak in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, and one of the few with a well-maintained trail to the top.  There are great views of Indian Peaks and Rocky Mountain National Park high country.  We will start on the Buchanan Pass Trail from the Mitchell Lake trailhead at Brainard Lake, then we'll take the Mount Audubon Trail to Mt Audubon.  More than half the trail is above treeline, and the final half mile is through a talus field, so be prepared for a moderate yet deliberate pace.

Please note that there is a $10 fee (per car) to enter Brainard Lake Recreation Area if you don't have a National Parks Pass.  If you have a pass, please bring it.  

Driving distance is 90 miles from the Coors Tek Center, which corresponds to $27 to be divided among the driver and passengers of the car for gas.





Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
