“Enjoy a ridgeline trail and secluded lake off the Lost Creek Ridge Trail #646.”— Kat Attaq
In spring, the path from the ridge to Round Lake is slow to melt and features steep slopes under obvious cornices. Also, route-finding on the upper portions of Lost Creek Ridge Trail is challenging in snow. Be cautious when the snow line is below ~5500'.
After a little more than a mile on the ridge, Round Lake is clearly visible off a northern side trail. The lake has lots of room for tents plus a pit toilet on the west side.
Lost Creek Ridge Trail continues along the ridge to reach other lakes, but gets even more overgrown. Eventually, the trail ends at a junction with the White Chuck Trail #643.
