Back to the trails list

 
Trail: Frying Pan Lakes #1921
Region: Frying Pan River Valley
Difficulty: moderate
Description: Beginning at Nast (Horseshoe Bend), the trail is a fairly easy climb and parallels the Fryingpan River for nine miles until it reaches the lakes. The trail may be shortened by taking road #505 and hiking the remaining four miles. This trail passes in and out of conifer forests and high meadows. There is a stream crossing about 2 1/2 miles before the lakes.
Directions: From Basalt, travel 32 miles up Frying Pan River. When pavement ends, take a right on Road 505 until it dead-ends. The trailhead is above a water diversion structure.
