Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness Area information
Accessible from town, the easy Hunter Creek Trail (USFS Trail 1992) follows Hunter Creek northeast about 3 miles through wildflower meadows to the Sunnyside and Hunter Creek Trails, which lead into the 82,026-acre Hunter-Fryingpan Wilderness Area. Less visited than other slices of Central Rockies wilderness, you can find some nice campsites and rugged peaks here, as well as the headwaters of two rivers.
To get to the trailhead from downtown, follow N Mill St across the river, then turn left on Red Mountain Rd and then right onto Lone Pine Rd.
