Clear-Lost Trail to Lost Lake Lookout Site

Clear-Lost Trail to Lost Lake Lookout Site Professional Review and Guide

"Start out downhill from U.S. Highway 12.Then cross the Clear Fork Cowlitz River, work your way through old-growth forest to Skeeter Shelter, and climb to small but pretty Lost Hat Lake. Above the lake, climb through alpine terrain and flowered slopes to the Lost Lake Lookout site. Elk are common on this slope; you will probably see their tracks on the trail. If you hike quietly you may even catch sight of these magnificent animals.

The first few yards of the Clear-Lost Trail are covered with fine gravel as you descend southwest from the trailhead. In a short distance the route passes between two concrete posts. Just past the posts is the wilderness registration box; get your wilderness permit here."
