Granite Lakes Trailhead
ELEVATION: 8,760 feet
10TH MTN MAP: Mount Yeckel, Upper Fryingpan
USGS MAP: Nast
From the 4-way stop sign in Basalt at Two Rivers Road and the Fryingpan River Road, follow the Fryingpan River Road approximately 31.5 miles to signs for Fryingpan River Ranch and for Nast Lake/Granite Lakes Trailhead. After the turnoff, a winding dirt road leads 1.1 miles to the obvious buildings of the ranch. This road has several steep switchbacks, so 4-wheel drive is recommended during snow season.
The Granite Lakes Trailhead is just after the bridge. For the trail to Twin Meadows and Margy's Hut, follow the marked trail around Nast Lake and begin climbing S.W.
