Highlight: Lost Eden
With a name like Lost Eden, you know the area has to be something special. The name is derived from an old homestead and ranch of the same name near Todds Draw south of the current Lost Eden road. The remains of the ranch still exist but are on a small plot of private land. Today, far more visitors roam the area than in the old ranching days. Lost Eden is a popular playground for the outdoorsy. Summer weekends find the road lined with campers, often in large impromptu villages. ATVs full of happy smiling faces parade the main road. If the exuberant crowds aren't your thing, blissful solitude can be quickly found along some of the more challenging side trails. The stately Ponderosa pines and occasional open grassy valleys offer lots of chances to see elk and other area wildlife. No matter what your idea of Eden might be, you can find it on Lost Eden.
