Trail: Granite Lakes #1922
Region: Frying Pan River Valley
Difficulty: moderate
Description: The trail begins just before the Fryingpan River Ranch. Please be considerate of private property. The first three miles of the trail follows the Fryingpan River and has a gentle incline. From the junction of Granite Creek to the lakes, the terrain becomes very steep. The lakes are nestled in a secluded cirque of the Fryingpan Wilderness and provide the opportunity for solitude and beautiful scenery.
Directions: From Basalt, drive 31 miles up Frying Pan River Road and turn right on Frying Pan Ranch Road. Follow sign to Nast Lake. Parking is at the trailhead across the bridge and the trail starts on the left.
