Details



From the Little Scraggy parking lot, the loop begins just across FS Road 550 (marked).


We will hike this one clockwise! The trail winds through forest with some nice rock features.

At the first junction (5.1 miles), take the right fork (the left leads to the Kelsey Campground) and begin a gentle climb west. At 6.8 miles, this section winds downhill with good visibility and incredible views. 

Toward the end of the new section, you get great views of Little Scraggy Dome, a rock climbing area. The next junction (presently unmarked) at 9.2 miles is with the Colorado Trail. To complete the loop, turn right and follow the Colorado Trail back to the Little Scraggy parking lot. 



Notes

This area has some amazing rock formations in the Lost Creek Wilderness!!!

Please bring plenty of water, snacks and lunch & of course your 10 essentials.
