Lost Creek Wilderness High Route on 07/06/2011 22:37:53 MDT Print View

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 trail head.

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