Excellent multi-day trip for fishing at Lost Lake and for enjoying spectacular
scenery. Good backcountry campsites near trail and Lost Lake. Excellent
area for skiing and snowmobiling into the alpine area.
First 4.5 miles from Primrose campground are dense spruce forest with
limited viewing spots. At mile 3, spur trail leads to viewpoint of Porcupine
Creek Falls. Good destination for a day hike or family outing. As trail
follows old mining road, notice remains of past mineral exploration. An
active mine can be seen at about 3.75 miles. Mining equipment belongs
to the miners and is private property. Mile 6 finds you at timberline
with dramatic views of mountains and lakes. A seasonal bridge is erected
across Lost Creek for continued hiking. Mt. Ascension (5710 feet) forms
the west border of Lost Lake.
