Lost Man Creek
The South Fork Pass Trail cruises up the Lost Man Creek drainage through vast flowery meadows, entering the roughly 83,000-acre Hunter-Frying Pan Wilderness Area. Hemmed in by a long series of connected summits over 13,000 feet, the broad valley tilts gently to the south, making the trail accessible for early hiking. Wildflower enthusiasts will enjoy viewing about 80 species of subalpine bloomers. Much of the flowering expanses are along a gradually ascending trail. This hike begins at a roadside trailhead and winds over to a canal. You’ll cross a reservoir dam and the easygoing trail travels on the west side of a creek drainage to a boxy little gorge which forms the turnaround point. Wildflower Alert: This trail takes you on a delightful tour of wide fields filled with subalpine wildflowers.
