The Brookside-McCurdy Trail is the major north-south trail into the center of the Lost Creek Wilderness in Pike National Forest. The trail extends for nearly 36 miles and reaches an elevation of 11,880 feet. The hike described here starts in Pike National Forest and enters the Lost Creek Wilderness. The trail follows the creek into a deciduous and conifer forest and rises moderately as it heads south into the wilderness area. At higher elevations, vistas open up to the west and small meadows offer pleasant rest and lunch opportunities. Wilderness regulations apply once you cross the boundary, so leash your pet.
