The Lost Creek Trail (#3462) is a moderate 3 mile hike. Once part of an extensive trail system along the divide between the Willamette and the Umpqua National Forests, it now acts as an access route to Mt. June, Hardesty Mountain and other trails in the area. Gaining about 500 feet per mile, it works its way through dense stands of second growth, open old growth, and openings with views to the west, before ending at the junction of the Sawtooth and Mt. June trails.
