Monsoon Season Makes For Great Hikes On Western Colorado’s Audubon Trail [PHOTOS]
Recent rainfall in Western Colorado has caused vegetation to thrive on the Audubon Trail, while not deterring visitors' use. Even a few varieties of wildlife have made some rare appearances.
Foliage is growing denser at some points along the trail. In addition, some animals which typically go unseen on the pathway have chosen to come out and enjoy the rain.
Hikers, bikers, dog walkers, and even joggers are still making full use of the trail.
Keep in mind, parking is available at several locations along the trail. Some parking locations require a parks pass, others do not. This parking area at Connected Lakes does require a parks pass or a per-visit parking permit.
Don't think for a moment the rain and cooler temperatures have made the trail less accessible or enjoyable. Actually, with the cooler temperatures, dog walkers need not get such an early start. Unlike the more extreme times of the summer, the trail is still very cool as late as 10 in the morning.
