Mount Audubon trail is 8.4 miles, out-and-back, rated difficult. High mountain views of Rocky Mtn. National Park and Indian Peaks. Traffic is moderate and can be heavy on weekends. Start early due to being high above the timber line and exposed to lightning. Recommend summit by noon. $9 fee.

14ers view without the crowd. Super windy and cold at the top. 70% of the trail is above treeline so keep an eye on the weather. Well marked trail except for the last 1/4 of it is a rock scramble but plenty of cairns to guide you.

Good hike to a 13000+ summit. Views are amazing from top! Trail is well marked except for last 600-800ft. .. just go up and pick your path carefully. Can be windy and cold on top so be prepared.

This hike is very rocky, but no climbing. Dress appropriately. It was very windy once you hike above the tree line. But all in all a great hike with beautiful views.

Got there early and parking was available at Mitchell Lake TH. Fairly easy hike up to the peak where the trail is lost among the rocks. Great all around view of the range along with Coney Lakes. Quick moving storm brought rain and clear skies after it passed. Well worth it.

Very fun hike. Did it on 8/5, and didn't make it to the top due to not being prepared for the cold, and incoming thunderstorms. Temps drop rapidly after 12k ft. I will be back in the coming by weeks to summit with two more layers! Difficult trail only because of the elevation, otherwise would call it moderate.

Great trail in good condition, very rocky though so opted to leave the dog home; a wise move would've torn up his paws. Beautiful summit views but don't forget your wind breaker!
