Clear Lost Trail

Clear Lost Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A steep descent and a cold-water ford in the first mile of the hike discourage a lot of hikers from pursuing the rewards offered by this trail. But if you wait until late July, when the snowmelt runoff has declined a bit and the water level in the creek has dropped, the ford isn’t too difficult. By late August, wading the Clear Fork is relatively easy and even refreshing—especially on the return trip when the cool waters soothe trail-tired feet.

Past the ford, the trail climbs relentlessly, leading hikers into high alpine country where both the trailside scenery and the expansive views increase in beauty with each step forward. The path leads past a pair of pretty mountain lakes and offers some fine camping for those who want more than a single day of exploring."
