Details

Description: Hike on a gentle wooded trail near Wigwam Creek and enjoy occasional views of the unusual geology of Lost Creek Wilderness.  If you want to see how many miles you can cover in 3 days this is not the trip for you!


Itinerary:


Day 1:  Hike on the Wigwam Trail (#609) along Wigwam creek and set up camp at around 2 miles in.  There are many nice flat campsites. (approx. 2 miles and 900 feet ascent).  If the group is willing we may push on to Wigwam Park, 3.4 miles and 1,400 ft total climb.


Day 2:  Explore the area and hike on the Wigwam Trail, Goose Creek Trail and/or Rolling Creek Trail.  Possible hike (approx. 6 miles roundtrip and 1200 feet ascent)


Day 3:  Break camp and hike out (approx. 2 miles, 900’ descent, 50’ gain). 


General Requirements: TBD


Maps:


Backpack with full pack – from/to trailhead to/from camp
