A day hike to the Fryingpan Lakes, or a longer wilderness route to the Continental Divide. This trail follows the upper valley of the Fryingpan River, bordered by the towering crags of the Continental Divide. The path is maintained only as far as the lower lake; the old trail that passes the upper lake and continues up the valley to a pass above the North Fork of Lake Creek is primitive and requires some route-finding skill to follow.
