Fryingpan Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The William O. Douglas Wilderness consists of countless small lakes among pumice fl ats and ancient cinder-cone volcanoes. A gentle landscape of bear grass meadows, small peaks, and plenty of sunshine, its hundreds of bodies of water also incubate millions of mosquitoes. Autumn is ideal, but be aware that the region’s abundant elk attract plenty of hunters. Wear orange or come in summer when, despite prolifi c insects, a multitude of fl owers streaks the countryside in a wide array of dazzling colors. This loop to Fryingpan Lake will allow you to cook up plenty of additional wanderings to other delectable lakes within this wilderness."
