Details

Mention Brookside McCurdy and the knowledgeable listener will assume a multi-day backpacking trip with high passes, 11,000' & 12,000' peaks through the Lost Creek Wilderness. While this trip follows the Brookside McCurdy trail (FST 607), our hike will be an out-and-back, roughly 5 mile day trip, with around 900' elevation gain. And while not the challenge of the full 32 mile Brookside McCurdy, we'll get a taste of the interesting terrain, some wildlife, an interesting hike through Forest Service management of a Ponderosa stand, and terrific views.
