The Forgotten Trail (1969–74) is a 2-CD collection of the greatest hits of Poco recorded during the group's work for Epic Records, which included their first eight albums (through Cantamos).

Although this collection does not include most of Poco's biggest hits, which came after the group's move to ABC Records, it does contain both sides of a non-LP single, three remixes, three alternate takes and six unreleased tracks, all of which came from Richie Furay's original time in the band. In particular, the album includes an alternate acoustic version of Poco's first hit, Jim Messina's "You Better Think Twice", and four previously-unreleased songs from the Crazy Eyes sessions, including Furay's "Believe Me", which later became a hit for the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band.
