Pitkin Creek and Pitkin Lake are named for Frederick W. Pitkin, governor of Colorado from 1879 to 1883. The Pitkin Creek drainage is a narrow, steeply rising glacial bowl that ends in Pitkin Lake with its memorable backdrop of jagged Gore Range peaks. These mountains have not been fully explored by mountaineers to this day. Isolated, seldom-visited valleys lie among the peaks. The Pitkin Lake Trail penetrates this imposing and visually beautiful range. Perhaps because of the paucity of explorers, these peaks have few written descriptions and their names are letters of the alphabet.
