"Another good winter destination for the nordic skier and snowshoer in the Brainard Lake area is the CMC Brainard Cabin, built in 1928. The cabin serves as a weekend warming hut and can be rented for overnight use. There are several wellmarked routes to the cabin. The Waldrop Trail, with its occasional steep sections, connects with the South Saint Vrain Trail before reaching a side trail to the cabin." Read more

"When the snow is ample and the winds are calm, the lovely Brainard Lake area offers many well-marked trails for the nordic skier and snowshoer. This loop takes you through the forest in a clockwise direction to Brainard Lake with a return on the wide Brainard Lake Road. This Indian Peaks area is very popular in both winter and summer."

One of these is the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC) South Trail, which parallels the Brainard Lake Road. High winds often rake this area, resulting in variable snow conditions. Dogs are forbidden on the CMC South Trail, as well as some of the other trails in this area." Read more
