The Chugach National Forest is the western most and northern most National Forest in the United States. It is comprised of 5.5 million acres of Alaskan forest. The Seward Ranger District encompasses the western most 890,000 acres of the Forest. The hike to Lost Lake starts in this area in the lush valleys surrounding Seward, AK. The trail gains elevation quickly, however, and in short time you will clear the tree line and reach the open meadows and snowy ridges near Lost Lake. If you are looking for an alternative to tent camping there is a USFS hut a few miles before you reach the campsite at the lake. Make sure to book your reservations well in advance. The cabin often books up in the busy summer months.
