“This lasso takes you to the two best areas of LCW without some of the pacing issues of other similar loops.”— Thomas Horner
Continue down the Brookside McCurdy Trail #607 as it descends west off of Bison Peak, following it north to the Lost Park Trailhead. Take Wigwam Trail #609 to the east through East Lost Park, which offers numerous sheltered camping locations all the way to the junction with Goose Creek Trail #612. Take Goose Creek Trail #612 south to the junction with McCurdy Park Trail #628, turning right to go west into Refrigerator Gulch.
You'll soon find yourself in the namesake area of Lost Creek, with building-sized boulders and strange rock formations all around. The creek disappears in and out of multiple caves and rock formations, and the trail can occasionally be difficult to follow here. There are plenty of ups and downs, and an incredible quantity of amazing campsites.
Eventually, you'll find yourself at the eastern base of McCurdy Mountain again, intersecting with the Brookside McCurdy Trail #607. Proceed south back to the Twin Eagles Trailhead on Brookside-MCcurdy to Ute Creek.
