View Full Version : Lost Creek Wilderness High Route

2011-07-07, 02:05
With a wedding to attend Saturday evening and the higher snow levels in a good chunk of the northern portion of the state, I wanted a trip that was a quick get-away..but one that was not overly crowded.

As I looked over my maps, I thought of my of the Lost Creek Wilderness and a route I did as a day hike three summers ago.

Rather than a one way hike with a car shuttle as I did three years ago, this time I would hike along the Colorado Trail, hike up the Brookside-McCurdy Trail and then 'shwack along a ridge from the (unofficially named) "Zephyr" to "Kenosha Peak" down to "Platosha Pass" , go down the Ben Tyler Trail and back along The Colorado Trail to my truck at the Lost Gulch trailhead.

A simple plan and one that fit my needs for a trip a little off the beaten path without being far away.

Lost Creek was an awesome section of the CT. It was the area where I hit my first snow with an early June start.

Good to see it again. Thanks.
