For those looking for a loop rather than an out and back trip to Lost Lake Glades take the Lost Lake access from Eldora Ski Area and then descend through the woods back to the main trail. The trees can be quite thick in places making for tricky turns. This line bottoms out at the creek that runs down the valley. Generally snow bridges make for easy crossing, but use caution.
After crossing the creek, you'll pick your way back through the woods to the main trail. The woods on the north side can be quite thick, making travel tricky. This entire route is in the trees meaning making navigation tricky. If you have any question about route finding, return via the Lost Lake Summit Ascent.
