Expect some great scenery and some challenging trail segments along Lost Lake Trail.

Lost Lake Trail is known for its undulating nature. For 4.5 miles hikers make several significant descents and accents reaching heights upwards of 1,500 feet. Lost Lake Trail skirts the edge of its namesake, explores dense conifer forests, provides photogenic views, and even treks through Upper Carp River. The final leg of the trail is an ascent up its junction with Government Peak Trail.

With the park hosting 22 trails containing over 90 miles of path, trail junctions provide access to connecting trails that lead back to your starting point. Remember that Porcupine Wilderness State Park is remote territory that demands a park map, compass, water and appropriate supplies and attire. Bug repellent is recommended during the warmer months.

Directions: From Junction of M-107 & S. Boundary Rd., Head 7 miles west to reach trailhead which is across the road from Lost Creek Outpost Campground. (Northern access is at the trail junction with Gov't Peak
