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 we must arrive at Brainard Lake Recreation area before 8 AM in order to avoid the day pass system.

You are encouraged to "register" for this trip through the services of  Look for the group "Groovy Hiking and Snowshoeing".  The event has the same name as this one. You get several advantages using the Meetup interface, including one-click addition to your electronic calendar; one-click posting to social media; seeing who else is on the trip and messaging them privately (without exchanging email addresses).
