A short, easy hike below the summit of Cottonwood Pass good warm up for other hikes in the Collegiate Mtn Range as well as excellent aspen viewing in Sept. Lost lake is below the continental divide with beautiful turquoise water & incredible 360 degree views. South of the lake is the Sanford Basin with 13ers Mt Kreutzer & Jones Mtn. Trailhead is unmarked when you see the final 2 switchbacks on Cottonwood the trail is on the left with asphalt pullout / parking on the right
