Snow route for 2019-tanks
With lingering snow on the Warren lake trail and our concern for safety of runners we will use the snow route for the 55/30k events. Detailed maps will be made available. We will return on the DLRT after Summit lake instead of turning right on Warren lake trail. Then turn right on Castle peak road up to Castle Pass, Castle Peak then Basin Peak and back. Distance and vert is close to the original routes.
Tank tops are not guaranteed for anyone signing up after July 30...
Wildflowers and Granite
Welcome to one of Truckee's most scenic and rugged trail races. The Lost and Found 55K/30k/10k has something for everyone. The 55K is a modified multi loop course. The start/finish is next to Lake Van Norden across from Soda Springs Ski area. Starting with a loop up to Razorback Ridge back to the start then under I-80 through the culvert. Take the single track over to the Donner Lake Rim Trail to picturesque Summit Lake Aid station as you wind through ancient granite slabs. Then return back and join the Warren Lake trail which continues to climb up next to the Frog Lake overlook. You then fall off the ridge where you find miles of wildflowers and little streams as you make your way through this pristine alpine valley. The climb up to Basin Peak will test your mettle but then the reward is real as follow along the most amazing ridge with 360' views from the Coast Range to Mt Rose where you summit Castle Peak. Enjoy the views before you plummet down to Castle Pass, hop on the hole in the ground trail and head back to the start/finish. Aproximate elevation gain is 6000 feet. The 30k will bypass the Royal Gorge loop and the Johnson Canyon loop and have around 4000 feet of gain. The 10k is the Royal Gorge loop section.
