Of the hikes originating from Bear Creek Pass, Lost Horse Lake is perhaps the most alluring. Best suited for overnight or weekend backpack trips, Lost Horse is also within the abilities of well-conditioned day hikers having an early start from the trailhead. The route beyond Fish Lake is not officially sanctioned and has never been maintained to USFS standards, but repeated use over the years has made it fairly obvious on the ground; somewhat surprisingly, its condition is comparable to or slightly better than many mapped “way trails” elsewhere in the Selway-Bitterroot.
