The Lost Lake Trail climbs several hundred feet in elevation from the southwest corner of Mesa Lake to the east end of Lost Lake just below the rim of the Grand Mesa. The trail provides access to fishing on South Mesa Lake and to Lost Lake and offers many scenic vistas, but may be impassible from the late fall through the winter months into the late spring due to snow drifts. Lost Lake is a long, narrow lake tucked up against the rim of the Grand Mesa surrounded by a large talus field of basalt boulders. The lake supports some fairly large trout that are difficult to catch but many hikers hike up to the lake to just to enjoy the emerald, green waters of the lake and to enjoy the scenery of the area.
