There are prettier hikes and longer hikes near Navajo Lake and Duck Creek, but there aren't many like Lost Hunter, a loop hike with little elevation gain that can be done in two hours. Lost Hunter is in thick pine forests and grasses. You're almost guaranteed to see deer somewhere on the trail. From the trailhead in Duck Creek Campground, you will quickly come to a fork. Go right and then go uphill until you come to a Forest Service Road. Turn left and follow the road a few hundred yards until you see the hiking trail again on your left. Follow the trail downhill and back to the campground. Turn left to return to the parking area next to the trailhead and amphitheater. Show more
