Gently rolling up and down through palmettos and maritime forest, the beauty of Lost Trail is captivating. Lost Trail can be divided into two parts, before and after its intersection with Roller Coaster Trail. The trail begins on the Main Road heading east. Passing the entrances of Oyster Pond Trail and Tar Kiln Trail 0.6 miles in, Lost Trail spurs into two directions. The left veers to Roller Coaster and the right begins the second section of Lost Trail. This section begins with blossoming wildflowers when in season and tall grass amid live oak and palmettos. Soon, the trail transitions into a corridor framed with palmettos that gently rolls up and down traveling parallel to the dunes. Nesting birds can be heard, and swampy pools of water frame the eastern side of the trail. The south end of Lost Trail connects to Duck House Trail. From here, you can choose to head east half a mile toward the beach, or loop back to the main road by heading west.
