  If you've been in the LCW area you know how spectacular it is with all the magnificent rock formations, alpine vistas, valleys, forest and the mysterious Lost Creek.   This 3 night / 4 day trip will be about 43 miles, starting at the Twin Eagles TH on Trl 607 going north thru McCurdy Park on Trl 628 thru Refrigerator Gulch then on Goose Crk Trl 612 to west on Wigwam Trl 609 to south on Brookside-McCurdy Trl 607 and back to the TH.  It can be seen on Trl Illustrated # 105.  Backpacking in this area is not without a lot of elevation gain so the trip will be strenuous.
