Back to the trails list

 
Trail: Aspen/Norrie #1927
Region: Frying Pan River Valley
Difficulty: easy
Description: From the trailhead in Twin Meadows, hike west along the creek. The trail is marked with blue metal tags on trees for cross-country skiers. Mt. Yeckel provides a breathtaking view of the Fryingpan River drainage and the Elk range. If you wander around Sawmill Park you will find the remains of an old firewatchers lookout tower and cabin. The trail ends at Sawmill Park, but you can continue all the way to Aspen by picking up the Spruce Creek trail at the other end of the Park.
Directions: From Carbondale travel east on Hwy 82 to Basalt. Turn left at the stoplight and follow the Fryingpan River Road for 28 miles. Turn right on road #504 at the Norrie Colony sign. Follow this gravel road 3 miles and turn right on the first gravel road fork. The trailhead bulletin board is visible as soon as you enter Twin Meadows.
