Lost Creek Falls is truly "lost". The falls were only recently marked on the USGS Little Huckleberry Mountain quadrangle, but upon visiting the falls, not only was the road leading there decommissioned, but the falls were missing too - dried out that is. Though the map doesn't show a large stream feeding the falls, I thought it would retain at least some flow into august since it drains from one of the most porous plateaus in the state - the Indian Heaven volcanic field - but apparently that isn't the case. The falls are accessed via decommissioned logging road that has been extensively bermed. A high clearance vehicle is necessary to drive as far as possible, otherwise I'd suggest biking to the falls to save on time.
- Lost Creek Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
Starting in the town of Trout Lake, follow Highway 141 west towards Peterson Prairie. Just under 8 miles from town the road turns to gravel and becomes the Carson - Guler Road (Forest Road 60). Following signs pointing towards Carson, proceed 3 1/2 miles further then turn right onto FR 6035, marked for Forlorn Lakes. Almost immediately turn right again on an unmarked road. The road crosses Dry Creek on a low water crossing (which looks like it should be shallow enough for sedans) and climbs gently for 2.6 miles to a washout. Stay right at all major junctions except the one that looks slightly overgrown and drops downhill to the right. There are several large water bars which will restrict the ability of sedans to proceed all the way to the washout (I got over 2 before I stopped), so consider bringing a bike. Once at the washout, cross and follow the roadbed on the other side for another 1/3 mile to where Lost Creek has washed out the road (its the third and largest washout from the end of the road). Standing in the creekbed and looking downstream the top of the falls is visible. Best route to views is to follow the east bank of the creek downstream.
