About Carrot Mountain: Lost Loop
Try carrot mountain backwards! this unique side trail offers a trek up carrot mountain that most are unfamiliar. after reaching the water reservoir, do not continue straight onto the main trail. instead, take the steep game trail to the right. do not attempt this in the winter as the trail is not flagged and can even be difficult to way-find in ideal conditions. this trail will eventually intersect the "slippery shale" gps point on our maps just past the giant boulder overlook. traveling alone is not recommended.
warning: this trail often has snow just past the summit on the north side of the trail right until mid-april! then, the flood begins and often davidson creek takes reign of the trail - flooding it in numerous spots. to avoid a drenching or stream hopping, wait until mid-june before hiking carrot.
