Trail: Sawyer Lake #1926
Region: Frying Pan River Valley
Difficulty: moderate
Description: This trail is a gradual to moderate hike for the entire distance. You will find yourself traveling through thick forest, opening up into several meadows where elk and deer are occasionally spotted. Remember to camp 100 ft. from the lake.
Directions: From Carbondale travel east on Hwy 82 to Basalt, turn left at the stoplight and follow the Fryingpan River Road for 28 miles. Take a right turn (south) on Road #504 at the Norrie Colony sign. Follow this gravel road until it dead ends at the Sawyer Lake trailhead just past the second pond.
