Trail: Tellurium Lake #1917
Region: Frying Pan River Valley
Difficulty: moderate
Description: It is 4 miles to Tellurium Lake and then 2.8 more to the junction with Last Chance Creek trail. This trail is an easy trail to hike with lots of meadows with flowers. You can also access Woods Lake Trail, Last Chance Trail, Josephine Lake and Henderson Park.
Directions: From Carbondale travel east on Hwy 82 to Basalt. Turn left at the stoplight and travel 27 miles up the Fryingpan River road. Turn left onto Road #501 towards Elk Wallow Campground, and in about 3 miles take road #506 to the left, following it for about 5 miles. As the road makes a sharp right on the second ridge, you will see an old logging road on the right side with a cable across it and some rocks blocking vehicle traffic. That is the beginning of the trail. Parking is available about 1/8 of a mile down the road. Just walk up the hill to the trail.
