Lost Lake Trail 91
by

I have hiked this trail so many times as a boy with my Father that I lost count if how many times I've been. I have not been there in 20 year, but I am taking my two children their in August and will post a full review when I return. The previous reviews are highly accurate. The Trail is Jeep Switchbacks for the first two to three miles and then becomes a nice single track of switchbacks after that. The scenery is comparable to what I see here in the PNW, but I fell in love the mountains here when I was 8 years old. Seriously, pack light and bring plenty of water and trailside food. And definitely fish at the lake before heading the next ten to Wheeler Peak. Sign the register and enjoy an easy hike on the way back.

Great hike! Kept a steady pace (family of 6) and came across a couple of other hikers. Make it to the top and the view is worth it.

DSNA - Organ Needles Trail.

This was my second attempt to reach the top, this time with my friend Santiago. We had quite an adventure and together made it about a mile past Fillmore Canyon, when the trail starts getting steep, unforgiving and difficult to follow. I continued to the peak, and it was much further up than I anticipated. Use caution and take your time once you reach the crest of the needles as the trail wraps around the mountain in a few places, it's very easy to tread in the wrong direction on the way down. There are several areas where you can camp up the trail, including the peak area. The ammo can is still there just to the right tucked in a rock crevice. The most rewarding and difficult hike I've done so far.

Had a great hike with my wife and daughter on this trail. Definitely does a better job at keeping the numbers on the trail lower than some others in the area. Great views and one of the prettiest rattlesnakes I have ever seen (and I grew up in this area). Will go do it again soon.

What a beautiful, peaceful riparian trail. Not what we Californians expected to see in the southwest. Highly recommend this trail and not many hikers seem to find it.
