A day hike along a wilderness route to a high alpine pass. This hike visits an obscure, crag-lined valley above the Fryingpan River. The trail is maintained only as far as the first meadows, a distance of 1.1 miles. Beyond this point, the hike becomes an off-trail ramble across boggy subalpine meadows and high alpine tundra to a high pass above the South Fork of the Fryingpan. The trail segment that once linked this pass with the South Fork is now blocked by blown-down timber.
