Lost Lake Backpack Trip
It starts at Dunraven Trailhead near Glen Haven, and follows the North Fork through Commanche Wilderness Area for about 4 miles. Then the trail enters Rocky Mountain National Park, and the trail goes for another 6 miles until it ends at Lost Lake. So its about 10 miles in (9.7 according to the sign). The trip was fun except I got the old 70's ghetto pack. Apparently someone took off the belt support so there was nothing but the shoulder straps. This really cut into my shoulders and caused some uncomfortable bruising. The following day I hiked to Mt. Dunraven (4 mi rnd. trip) before we hiked back. This was a neat area. With Hague's Peak, Rowe Peak, and Mummy so close, a three day return trip may be in order.
