Summertime Adventures


The secret’s out. The BEST mtb single tracks are in Coldstream Canyon.

Summer allows the luxury of driving into the canyon.  2wd vehicles park at our summer parking area ¼ mile from the lodge.  4wd vehicles with adequate clearance can drive to the lodge.
People bringing horses or OHVs can trailer to the summer parking area.  We’ll help you get your feed and tack the rest of the way in for your horses.

**The 4 mile road to the lodge is dirt and bumpy.  Parking onsite offers an adventurous approach as the road leads you through creeks and a tunnel!
Folks interested in a more adventurous approach can park at our winter parking area and hike or mountain bike the 4 mile trail to the lodge.

Other options are to hike the PCT from either Squaw Valley or Donner Summit to the Coldstream Trailhead and down to the lodge.

Summertime activities abound at the Lost Trail!  Make your trip as action packed or restful as you want.

Explore the canyon.

Mountain Biking:

Let us introduce you to our good friends, Jp’s, Yogi’s, BooBoos Revenge, and Snagglepuss. Don’t know what we’re talking about?  Don’t worry- just bring your bike and we’ll point you in the right direction.


Find a seasonal private waterfall to picnic by.  Reach peaks and ridges with unparalleled views.


Bring your gear.  We’ll let ya in on a little secret.  Or just follow the local’s.  They know where to go.


Bring your horses for a unique trail experience.  We have very basic paddocks in the yard.

Get lost in a good book on the porch, nap in a hammock or laze by the babbling creeks.

Head to the lakes and streams to throw a line in.  Donner Lake’s 4 miles away, or wade into the Truckee River to fly fish for rainbows, you’re bound to have a great experience.

Take in some local charm- The Tahoe/Truckee area hosts a variety of events, many free, every day of the week!  Take advantage of the “easy” access and enjoy the best of what Truckee/Tahoe has to offer.
Check out the Truckee Tahoe Weekly for current festivities.
