The Lost and Found 30k/5k has something for everyone. The 30k is a modified loop course. The start/finish is at the Johnson Canyon trailhead above Donner lake. Starting with a steep climb up to the Donner Lake Rim Trail, along picturesque Summit Lake, winding through ancient granite slabs and then joining the Warren Lake trail (Aid 1 mile 3.5) 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 (Aid 2 mile 8.5) will test your mettle and then 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 (Aid 3 mile 11.5), hop on the hole in the ground trail and head down to the Donner Lake Rim Trail (Aid 4 mile 15.3) back to Johnson Canyon. Approximately 4550 feet of vert, 4 aid stations and a great post race party await.
The 5k is a single loop with about 823 feet of climb, great views of Donner lake and the Pacific Crest. Come and see why trail running is so addictive! You won’t be disappointed!
