The Lost Creek Trail is a one-mile loop trail with a spur that leads to a bluff overlooking a portion of the Lost Creek Waterfowl Refuge. During the waterfowl season, large numbers of waterfowl may be observed from the overlook. The trail offers a variety of flora and fauna. The majority of the trail is through oak-hickory forest, although portions of the trail pass through transitional bottomland hardwoods and near the lake shoreline.
The Trail rests within the Lost Creek Waterfowl refuge. Hunting and Trapping is allowed; however, the refuge is closed to firearms, hunting, and boat traffic during duck season. No discharging of firearms of trapping within 500 feet of the parking area and/or trail is allowed.

NRT Ambassador Review
The Lost Creek Nature Trail is located at the north end of Wappapello Lake. Follow the signs for Pisos Point/Lost Creek Waterfowl Refuge from HWY D to locate the trailhead and parking lot at the terminus of CR 523. This one-mile, easy loop trail offers quiet seclusion as you pass through an oak-hickory forest and panoramic views of Wappapello Lake from two scenic overlooks along the peninsula. There is an adjoining watchable wildlife loop with access to a pond for fishing. Please leave no trace by packing out your trash and respecting wildlife when out on the trail.
