The Douglas Bay to Lost Lake trail begins adjacent to the Douglas Bay campsite. The official trailhead can only be reached from the Douglas Bay campsite at low tide, and involves a slippery creek crossing. Trailhead will then be met at a smaller beach; a good place for a lunch on a day hike between Lost Lake and Douglas Bay. Alternatively, if you are camping and want to go back to Lost Lake, or are coming from the lake and wish to camp an unofficial route has been set with orange and pink (and a bit of blue) flagger tape. Coming from Douglas Bay, exit the campsite the way you came, and make a left at the flattened area at the top of the hill overlooking the creek. Make a crossing at this ravine and scramble upwards using the old log pathway (can be slippery). At the top of the hill post scramble continue following flagger tape until you meet up with the blue square markers at the intersection. Coming from Lost Lake at the intersection make a right and follow the flagger to the log path and scramble, cross the ravine and make a right down the hill to the campsite. The trail largely follows an old dried up creek bed from most of the way, with the other portion being an old corrugated logging road that can be hazardous and should be followed with caution. The whole route is marked with mostly visible blue square markers.
