Trail shared by Tom Robson

A quick, relatively easy journey away from the Brainard Lake crowds to the Indian Peaks Wilderness.

Description

From the Niwot Cutoff TH, a -mile run leads west up a small slope and through the woods to Long Lake. The trail lazily switchbacks its way above Brainard Lake, and into an intersection with Jean Lunning Trail and Long Lake Dam Connector.
