Fryingpan Lakes Trail

Fryingpan Lakes Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Total ascent: 1,708 feet. Total descent: 1,476. There’s a lot of up and down to this Fryingpan Lakes Trail, but your rewards are well worth it. The scenery, the lakes and the jagged peaks of the Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness all help make this a fabulous hike.

The river was named for a fryingpan hung in a tree to mark the spot of a wounded trapper in a fight with native American Utes. This area has a proud history of trapping, mining and life on the Colorado frontier, where legends of wealth continue to grow."
