A day hike or backpack from Lenado to Twin Meadows. Also known as the Aspen–Norrie Trail, this route follows a heavily timbered valley to the wooded crest of the Fryingpan River divide, then descends to wind up in Twin Meadows. The vertical gain is less when the trail is approached from Twin Meadows, but steep grades on this side of the divide render the hike easier when it is approached from Woody Creek. The upper reaches of the trail are faint in places, and map and compass skills will come in handy. The trail is short on mountain views, but Sawmill Park at the top of the divide offers a pleasant spot to take in the solitude. From here, a short connecting trail climbs to the summit of Mount Yeckel, where hikers can reach a four-wheel-drive road for a shorter hike.
