Description

Lost Creek Interpretive Nature Trail is located in the Lost Creek Campground in the Old Maid Flats area, up Lolo Passon Forest Road 1825. The short trail has numerous interpretive signs along the way that explain the volcanic origins of the area, the fish, wildlife, and forest around the trail. There are a number of memorial benches too, that make a great place to rest while you think. The trail is paved, however there are parts of buckled asphalt in need of repair in some sections.

The Lost Creek Campground was one of the first barrier free campgrounds constructed in Oregon and it and the Lost Creek Nature Trail was constructed in partnership with the Forest Service by the Handi-sportsters.

Flora & Fauna

The interpretive trail is amongst large Douglas firs, western hemlocks, big leaf maples and the large water-loving western red cedars. The understory is a thick carpet of oxalis, sword fern, maidenhair fern, Oregon grape, salal and willows along the creek.
