Backpack Lost Creek

5 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Lost Creek - Search Nearby - Added by Ryan Mckinney

Enjoy beautiful backcountry scenery and plenty of Brook Trout if you're planning on fishing along Lost Creek.

I included a trail map of where I camped. There are many sites all throughout this area. From the Lost Park Campground Parking lot follow the Lost Creek for 2.4 miles. At the 1 mile mark was the best place that we found to cross the creek (there are two logs that make a bridge across the creek). You will pass many camp sites along the way and I am sure that there are several past the 2.4 mile mark.

Make sure to bring your fly rod. The brook trout were small but they are still fun to catch!

Lost Creek Wilderness Area is incredibly big and is all connected by dirt roads. If you can research where to go possibilities of remote tripping are endless. There are lots of amazing climbing and bouldering trips to be had as well at backpacking.

Summer, a season not to be missed in Aspen!

"I came for the winter, and stayed for the summer," is a phrase you'll often hear around town.  The weather is one of the highlights. During the day the temperature hovers in the 70's and 80's, and by evening the mercury will drop into the 60's. Arts & culture enthusiasts will be just as fulfilled as the adventure junkie during summer in Aspen.  The events calendar abounds with activities for everyone, from cultural events to athletic pursuits.

Experiencing all Aspen has to offer is as easy as opening the front door. Join us for a summer adventure that’s anything but ordinary.
