The Taylor Creek cabins are located on the Frying Pan Road next to the Frying Pan River. The cabins are situated at the confluence of Taylor Creek and the Frying Pan River.
The Frying Pan River and the Roaring Fork River have both been designated as Gold Medal rivers by the Colorado Division of Wildlife. To be designated a Gold Medal River the river must contain 60 pounds of trout per acre foot and 12 trout per acre foot that measure 14 inches or longer. One report on the Frying Pan River below Ruedi reservoir indicated that there are 1,100 pounds of trout per acre-foot in that area. This constitutes World-Class trout fishing!!
