    Lost Creek Wilderness loop

    I'm expecting to hike in Colorado's Lost Creek Wilderness in September and was hoping to camp each night in my hammock without having to go to ground. Does anyone here have knowledge of the trails in this area that would be able to give guidance about where hammock-suitable-trees are particularly scarce?

    You'll have no trouble hanging in LC except perhaps at the very highest elevations.

    +1. No major areas to expect problems at. Definitely thinner above tree line at those high elevations and things always tend to thin out/thicken up here and there in Colorado (definitely not constantly thick like in the NW or SE) but you should be fine in that area overall. I'd hang there without any concerns about finding suitable trees with only a minimal amount of observation a bit before you end up choosing your spot for the night.

    What loop?

    Which loop are you hiking?
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    Brookside-McCurdy Trail
    McCurdy Park Trail
    Goose Creek Trail
    Wigwam Trail
