Great mtb trail. Will definitely come back for more fun. I certainly wouldn’t consider it to be the hardest for cycling or hiking. Rigid or hardtail welcome on this single track.

More like "Get lost trail". Hardly any trail markers combined with constant split offs and cross paths makes it easy to get lost.

Pretty boring for such a long walk/hike, but I imagine it would be a great track for some easy to moderate mountain bike training. Plenty of city sounds, though, as the road is never far away.

definitely a bike trail bit offers a good hike. lots of inclines through the forest but zero scenerary other than trees. has a small creek stream but its nothing to look forward too. great for excercise. wouldnt rate it as diffucult if your an avid hiker but could be challenging for the less experience. again ZERO SCENERY

Trail seems geared towards mountain biking, but we had a nice hiking experience. Terrain is easy winding around in a largely pine forest.

Parked at main Harbison lot off Broad River rd. Cost to park is $5 bucks or $24 for a season pass. Also there are no rest rooms, so stop ahead for the bathroom.

From parking lot it's about a mile to trail. We logged approx. 8 miles round trip.

Lost Creek Trail is one of the lesser used trails in Harbison State Forest. It is primarily a mountain biking trail, but offers a good hiking experience. While it is not as technical as Spider Woman II, it's still listed as difficult. I would imagine this is due to the 5.7 mile length of the trail. You can park at the Eagle Trail head parking area and take the Fire Break Trail west to get to Lost Creek.

The trail winds through the forest on the west side of Lost Creek Drive along the Lost Creek. The trail is well defined but not marked. This causes a little confusion in parts. If you are hiking in a clockwise direction you can expect two forks in the trail around the "JJ" distance marker. I suggest you go left at the first fork, then go right at the second fork you come to.
