Family Hike in the Roaring Fork Valley

Lyle and Mormon Lakes Offer a Good Destination Hike


A recommended outing for hikers of all ages, this trail accesses two lakes, good fishing, and some of the best high alpine scenery in the Rocky Mountains.

Family hiking opportunities abound in the wilderness areas surrounding Aspen and Snowmass. The Hunter Frying Pan Wilderness Area, located north of Aspen, abuts the Continental Divide to the east. Because it is more difficult to access, it is less popular with the crowds of day hikers found in the Aspen area.
