A trail for day hikes, or longer loop routes, climbing into alpine country through a 6,000-foot pass in the Mentasta Mountains. This high-country hike connects Trail and Lost Creeks over an unnamed 6,000-foot pass in the spectacular alpine country of the Mentasta Mountains. The trip follows the valleys of the two creeks, looping around a striking, unnamed, brown-and-white-layered mountain visible north of the Nabesna Road. The scenic highlights are craggy Noyes Mountain (8,147 feet) on the crest of the range; an ice-cored, rubble-covered valley near the pass; and miles of side valleys and ridges on either side of the pass.
