General Information: The trail follows mostly ridges and side hills. Trail #484A continues over Shellrock Pass, past Fred's and Doris lakes to meet the Robinson/Middle Fork Trail #478. The section of 481-P from Butte Pass to Hidden Lakes has been abandoned, but it is still usable for the adventurous. The trail is seldom used beyond the the Eureka Creek Bridge and leads to the isolated country of upper Monument Creek. The high country around Pistol Peak and Shellrock Pass offers impressive views. There are rainbow trout in Fred's and Doris Lakes and rainbow and Dolly Varden in Lost River and Monument Creek. A loop is often made with this trail and Robinson Creek 478 as the trailheads are only 2 miles apart by road. The trail passes through the 1986 Eureka Fire between Lost River and Pistol Pass. The tread in this area may be difficult to follow. This trail is not recommended for stock beyond the Eureka Creek bridge due to hazardous sections of trail and frequent slide areas. Fill canteens at Eureka Creek as this the last water for 8.5 miles.
Directions: From Winthrop, Drive Highway 20 west 14 miles to the Mazama turnoff. Turn right to Mazama then left at Mazama onto Hart's Pass Road (County Road 1163). Drive 7 miles to Lost River, ).2 miles further is the Monument Trailhead (signed).
