Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis is a gentle Thirteener (13223ft) located within the boundaries of the Indian Peak Wilderness Area. It is generally more of a peak-bagger, hiker-type of peak; however, it does host some pleasant snow couloirs & rock scrambles. It, as most high peaks, is exposed to weather, lightning, etc., so consider that it can be a long time to get down below treeline. Winter approaches are extended by the fact that the road is closed well before Brainerd Lake. Bring skis or snowshoes for winter flotation. Summer time access is compounded by additional US access fees which are collected from relatively early in the morning. Plus, they do check your car when/if you park earlier than the beginning of their shifts.
The elevation gains is a mere 2730ft from the summer trailhead.
Getting ThereThis is typically accessed from Brainerd Lake, which lies off the Peak to Peak Highway (CO Hwy 119), just N of Nederland. Head W on the road when you see the sign for Brainerd Lake. Continue to the Blue/Mitchell Lakes trailhead. Park. Hike about 3 mi.
