Fantastic trail along the river and up to a beautiful alpine lake. We camped in Sugarloaf Campground, which dropped into the mid-30s at night on September 7th.

Great hike and worth the effort to make it to the lake. The trail starts in National Forest and some private land before reaching RMNP. Pretty gradual steady climb for the first 6 to 7 miles, but intensifies shortly after the Halfway campsite (permits require for all backcountry camping in RMNP). Decent tree cover most the way as well. Very nice wildflowers in bloom. This is a shared trail with horses, so be prepared for plenty of manure and the associated flies. Bring bug spray if you plan on hanging out at the lake.

Longish hike with some good elevation gain. Wildflowers were stunning throughout the hike. Stayed at upper campsite near the lake and glad the wind was blowing as bugs were bad. Areas of mud and trail is also used by horses so some parts are a little beat up from them. Definitely will be going back in the future to stay more than 1 night. Have fun!!

Super for backpacking, a long leisurely climb with some rocky inclines but with several flat forest and meadow paths for respite between climbs. For camping at Lost Lake, pack plenty of bug deterrent! The marshy sides at Lower Lost Lake #1, which is a wonderful site, makes for a mosquito wonderland.

I backpacked this trail this weekend we friends and stayed at lake lost. First day we hiked to half-Point and camped there (around 6 miles). Half way campsite requires permit as well as lost lake. Trail is very well maintained and marked. Just following Thompson river up the mountain, it’s very easy to follow and not get lost. As altitude increases or gets harder to breath so go slow to ensure your heart rate doesn’t go beyond safe levels. On this trail you must not forget a couple things: - repelente: there’s tons of bugs and they bit big time. - rain gear: on our way up we crossed a couple who said we’d get rain for sure because it always rain at Rocky Mountains. We didn’t believe but end up getting a torrential rain on our last 3 miles. So make sure you have at least a rain jacked and a cover for the backpack - sunscreen. The trail is mostly covered by trees but still there are several areas in the open - water filter: don’t bring too much water so you stay lighter. You’ll be following the river so you’ll have tons of chances to get river water and filter that out. I use a “smart water”bottle and a small filter you can get it at Walmart - I always use walking sticks and recommend to anyone starting backpacking. The sticks are specially helpful in the areas with quicker elevation gain. It really helps u both upward or downward Lastly. Make sure you don’t stay only at lost lake but go explore upward towards the other lakes. It’s an easy hike following Thompson river and you can catch amazing views of the mountains and the local flowers and tundra. I posted some pictures to give some idea. Anyways, I highly recommend this hike for a 2-3 backpacking trip.

Did a trail run this morning and although it was still a bit muddy from last night’s rain it was stunningly beautiful with tons of wildflowers. I didn’t do the whole trail, just made it an 8 mile round trip. I will definitely be back to do this whole trail and hopefully get up into the high alpine environment!

Very pretty hike only saw about 30 people, which is solid for late June in RMNP. 6/29/19 A bit of snow and mud but no traction or flotation needed would recommend good shoes and hiking poles though. This trail is shared with horses so you have to deal with their poop and subsequently flies every once in a while. Lots of chances to get water, so if you have purification really no need to carry more than a liter.
