“Summit one of Colorado's most beautiful 13ers through wildflowers and panoramic views.”— Tom Robson
Due to its easily accessible nature, Mount Audubon is one of the more crowded runs in the Brainard Lake Recreation Area.
The Brainard Lake Road is open seasonally. During these months, a vehicle fee applies for trailheads located within the Brainard Lake Recreation Area.
1.7 miles. Here, the Mount Audubon Trail turns left (west). Now above timberline, the Mount Audubon Trail continues to climb in a consistent manner with the exception of two somewhat steeper sections near the middle and end of the trail.
The developed trail ends at the saddle where there is a view down into the Coney Lake drainage. For the final mile and 600 vertical feet, follow the piles of rock (cairns) up the talus to the summit.
