Come and Get Lost!
GET LOST in the beautiful Okanogan National Forest during the 4th annual Trail Race at Lost Lake. This incredible race is a fundraiser for the Okanogan Highlands Alliance (OHA), a local grass-roots environmental organization. This year is extra special, as we are celebrating OHA's 30th Anniversary! All race entries come with a complimentary one-year membership to OHA and some super cool surprise swag! There will be aid stations and a delicious post race meal for all racers. There will also be a FREE Kid's 1k fun run on race day!
We have reserved the USFS group site this year, and are (tentatively) inviting race participants to camp Saturday night before the race! There are also individual sites available on a first come, first serve basis for $15 per night. We'll keep our distance, follow all current COVID guidelines and run the races! All races will begin and end at the Lost Lake Group Camp.
About Lost Lake
The Lost Lake area offers a medium sized lake with scenic views, forested mountains, abundant wildlife, and a few hiking trails. The surrounding area has clean streams and diverse forests that support an abundance of wildlife, including deer, porcupine, black bear, cougar, native fish, common loon, bald eagles, and migratory birds. Endangered and threatened species, including gray wolves and Canada lynx, also find havens in nearby ecosystems. Lost Lake offers outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to hike, fish, and enjoy a long list of outdoor recreational activities. Anglers enjoy boat fishing (with an electric motor only) for rainbow and triploid eastern brook. A boat ramp is available in the campground.
Local time: 1:30 PM
In January 2010, Okanogan Highlands Alliance responded to an extraordinary opportunity, purchasing 38 acres of wetland and 27 acres of adjacent forestland on the south end of Lost Lake. The Lost Lake property, with its abundant plant and wildlife, will be restored where necessary and preserved in perpetuity.
