Buena Vista, Colorado- Lost Lake Trail

Lost Lake Trail is a 5 mile round trip hike starting at 11,742 ft and ending at 11,930 feet.  The hike is fairly easy; there are some ups and downs, but the reward is great.  The trailhead is not marked.  From Buena Vista, take 306 for 17.8 miles; there is parking for six to eight cars.  


couldn't ask for a better day to hike










there were several small stream crossings to cross



there are a few bogs you have to balance your way through

beautiful flowers everywhere



beautiful views everywhere...and a bit of snow remains

the first alpine lake you come to



There were a few challenging climbs





here we are...Lost Lake
crystal clear turquoise water...perfect picnic spot and worth the journey



a group of teens  jumping off the rocks. From their shrieks, we assume it was pretty cold in the deep part of the lake
wayne even enjoyed the water along the shoreline
