Lost Creek Wilderness.  We'll go in from the Payne Creek/Brookside TH outside Bailey, up the Brookside McCurdy Trail, FST 607.  Goal is to go out about 4 miles, have lunch and return the way we came.  Start at about 8200' and tops out at about 9300'. If we find it slow going due to poor snow or weather conditions, we'll adjust.

Meet at the Fort Restaurant pullout, Colorado Hwy 8@US 285, 6:50 am to leave promptly by 7:00 am.  We will make a comfort stop at the Bailey Loaf N Jug, 173 Bulldogger Rd, at the stoplight.

Upon leaving the Loaf and Jug, continue south on Hwy 285 for 3.1 miles.  Turn slight left onto Cty Rd 64 (at Moore Lumber/Ace Hardware) Continue for 2.0 miles.  The Trailhead sign is on the left and big, so you can't miss it. Turn left and continue to the parking lot.
