From the trailhead in Twin Meadows, hike west along the creek. The trail is marked with blue metal tags on trees for cross-country skiers. Mt. Yeckel provides a breathtaking view of the Fryingpan River drainage and the Elk range. If you wander around Sawmill Park you will find the remains of an old fire watchers lookout tower and cabin. The trail ends at Sawmill Park, but you can continue all the way to Aspen by picking up the Spruce Creek trail at the other end of the Park.
