Just a quick posting on our hike this past Monday. There is a trail the circles Lost Creek Lake and is about 17 miles in length. Along this route there are various trailheads which can be accessed for hikes of varying mileage. We started at the Lewis Road TH and hiked along the lake shore to a short side trail which leads up to the Blue Grotto Canyon and Falls. The falls though were a disappointment as there was very little water flowing into the canyon, which surprised both of us.
It was very very hot on Monday, but we enjoyed all the wildflowers and the beautiful views of the lake. There was also poison oak lining the trail (literally) and we even had a half dozen or so ticks join us for the 4.8 mile roundtrip hike - but we eventually and happily parted ways with them. Enjoy the pictures.
