Great hike. Trail 1350 goes to lost lake (about 2 miles), then continue (4 more miles) to Manastash lake. Walking, motorcycle, and horseback are the preferred method of travel. It's just $5.00 for the day and you can purchase this pass using cash just past the Manastash lake road entrance, at Riders Campsite, just a mile or so further on the right-hand side. Hiking to Lost lake, on foot, only takes us 45 minutes with a few short stops. Manastash lake is about 2+ hours on foot.

Very scenic hike. Pretty easy hike with great scenery. The 9 miles of gravel road to the trailhead was not fun in our Camry. After completing the hike and reaching our car I was rewarded with a flat tire. Make sure you have good tires, and better yet drive a pickup or SUV.

Trail is motocross - deep ruts. The lake is cool but better to do as a hike than mountain bike.

Great hike, fairly easy for kids at least 6 yrs old, and good fishing in the lakes, oh and look around in the rocks in the lake, many salamanders and crawdads in the creeks, good fun for the kids and family!!

Headed out this morning in hopes of a nice day hike with 5 others. Most of our preferred trails are still under snow so we headed a little further east. Unfortunately for us, the road (FS31) was gated about 9 miles from the trailhead. There was a significant washout about a mile in from the gate back in 2010 that has caused the road closure. Not wanting to waste the day, we proceeded with a road walk for about 4.5 miles. It was nice since the road pretty much follows the Manastash Creek. At 4.5 miles we turned around and headed back. The other possible access is from the Taneum area. The road system is fairly good in that area and my guess is that it's accessible from that side.
