Frying Pan Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail could easily be just an extension of either Cohab Canyon or Cassidy Arch. Maybe somebody decided to give the middle portion a different name after a hike on an extremely hot day.

Whatever the source of the name, the Frying Pan Trail is worth a visit. Many people do a point-to-point over the Frying Pan for a long day hike. Most catch a ride to the Grand Wash Trailhead, visit Cassidy Arch, and then follow the Frying Pan to Cohab Canyon and walk to their site at the campground. This is not a casual hike with an overall elevation gain of more than a thousand feet. The highest point is about a mile north from the Cassidy Arch junction. If you have not seen Cassidy Arch, there really is no reason not to make the side trip if hiking Frying Pan Trail. It is worth the time and effort to see the natural red rock arch."
