In July this is perhaps the most beautiful trail the Kenai Peninsula has to offer. Climbing through a hemlock and spruce forest, the trail emerges above tree line on tundra and flowered meadows. The area was at one time heavily glaciated. Now brilliant blue and green lakes fill every depression, reflecting the snow-covered summits of surrounding mountains. Lost Lake, the largest, is forced into a strange shape by the topography. Parts of the alpine portion of trail are accented by stands of weathered, gnarled hemlocks. The area invites camping and exploring. Water is plentiful. A few small fish populate Lost Lake, and marmots abound in the nearby rock slides. The trail is good for family outings and ski or snowshoe trips. There are two trailheads. The northern trailhead is in Primrose Landing Campground on Kenai Lake, and the southern trailhead is in a housing subdivision outside Seward. Lost Lake is halfway between these points. The following pages describe a traverse from north to south, as the views are best looking south, but hikes out and back from either end are grand as well.
