Mt. Audbon
Paiute Peak
Dry The Paiute Peak, Mt Audubon loop is dry and mostly snow free. There is a small patch of snow near the top of the couloir which accesses Paiute Peak from Little Blue Lake, but it is easy to get around. The ridge between Paiute and Audubon is mostly class 2 climbing with some minimal exposure in a few sections. There are some class 3 routes, but they can be avoided. This time of year, there can be patches of ice from subfreezing nighttime temperatures. Winds are also an issues and typically start getting stronger during the autumn season. Today I met many hikers who had turned around before reaching the Audubon summit because of the strong winds and low temperatures.

Mitchell Lake
Blue Lake
Dry Lovely evening hike! New trail section between Mitchell and Blue is fantastic! 4 dogs off leash swimming in Mitchell Lake. This can put the wildlife that live there at risk for contracting diseases that the dogs are immune to from previous exposure but wildlife is not (this is also another reason to pick up and pack out the poop). Please take dogs to dog parks with water features for swimming. Saw a large bull moose below Blue Lake and above the trail to the north. One dog nearby, on leash luckily, was barking at it and the moose just gave the dog a glare.

Mitchell Lake Trail (Mitchell Lake to Blue Lake)
Dry The trail is in excellent condition.
09-14-2019 East Portal/Moffat Tunnel 10 Crater Lake Trail
Dry The trail up to Crater Lakes is in really great condition, and particularly lovely this time of year. Wildflowers are still in bloom, there are cairns marking spots where the trail winds over rocks and could easily be lost. Please keep dogs on leashes- there are a lot of moose in the area. If you're headed up to the lake for an overnight, please remember that campfires are not allowed in the wilderness area. Be sure to place your tent at least 100' from the lake, and please pack out your trash - do not bury it! This area gets a lot of love, so we need to practice Leave No Trace if we want to keep it in good shape!
