The trip to Lost Creek Falls begins with a long drive on rough gravel roads and ends at the foot of a gorgeous and secluded waterfall. The 2-mile-long trail is surprisingly uncrowded and ideal for families and beginner hikers. It borders Lost Meadows and then enters a lush, maritime forest. Beyond the falls, there is an option to hike an additional 5 miles to Lost Lake, or an additional 8.6 miles to the Bitterroot Divide at the Idaho border.
