Windy Peak is an off-trail hike in the Lost Creek Wilderness.  It is 10 miles southeast of Peak.  It has the same open type of summit with granite boulders as the other high peaks in the Lost Creek Wilderness.

This is not an easy hike.  This rough, rewarding hike is an off-trail, navigational challenge from trailhead to treeline.  This is a scout hike.  

We start at the Lost Park Trailhead.  This is the trailhead with the 20 mile dirt road just past Kenosha Pass off of Hwy 285.

I will update weather as we get closer to the hike, and send out a caltopo map with the proposed route.

Please let me know any health issues you may have that I should know about.

Please bring your 10 essentials, your compasses and GPS's to help us navigate.
