A divine run through massive granite formations, splendid meadows, and lush forest.

Overview

This route goes through a Wilderness area within a 100 mile radius of approximately 2 million people, yet I rarely see anyone except near the Goose Creek TH. It doesn't provide the views one gets in the Sawatch Range or around other 14'ers but it provides a splendor and intimacy lost in those environments. I find Lost Creek Wilderness to be a place that just embraces me. I hope you find it treats you as well.
