Ascent Trip Report

Number two of a three short HPS hikes day. After finishing Ryan Mtn shortly before 10:00 I headed down the road towards the Lost Horse Mine Trailhead. Being a spring Saturday morning the lot was full and I parked just outside along side the road. I started up the well maintained, mostly level and popular trail about 10:15. The tail before reaching the mine does not climb much. The route up to the peak breaks off just before you would hike up the mine at a trail marked the Lost Horse Loop Trail. I'm not really sure where it loops but you quickly deviate from the trail up a ridge to the summit. The climb up the ridge is pleasant and does not look like it gets much use. I don't recall finding a register on the broad summit. Great views of just climbed Ryan Mtn and next up for the day Inspiration. Time up about 50 minutes and same down, 4.4 miles round trip and 700ft gain. I guess technically I was the only party on the mountain since everyone else seemed destined for the mine.
