Wigwam Creek is a small stream with a good supply of Brook Trout. The drive to the trailhead takes hikers through massive square miles of burned forest that were torched in Colorado's largest wildfire, the Hayman Fire (2002). In contrast, the Wigwam Trail testifies to what survived. Lush, green, heavy vegetation and tall evergreen trees are a welcome sight. Off of the beaten path, the trail is lightly used compared to other trails in the Lost Creek Wilderness area.
