Description

Lost Creek Trail is one of the longest trails in the conservancy at about 4.5 miles without any intersections.

This trail is typically started from the north end (just past the 805 Cabin), by taking the Riverside Trail to the end and climbing up the steep doubletrack road, Main Loop-Town Trail Access, behind and to the northwest of the historic 805 Cabin.

Lost Creek Trail is full of great, bench-cut trail taking you through the trees, making you feel one with the forest. There are several good climbs along the way and a couple of creek crossings.

Lots of switchbacks. Most of the trail roller coasters for good flow, but there are several stretches where it's a longer uphill grade. Also ravines. 4.4mi — 1h 30m
