A long day trip or a 2-to-3-day backpack to a large alpine lake in the Kenai Mountains. Lost Lake is an alpine lake 2 miles long, set at the edge of a huge expanse of alpine country. Long, low tundra ridges finger into the lake at several points, and many smaller lakes and ponds dot the low hills to the east of the lake. To the west, Mount Ascension looms more than 3,000 feet above. Good camping, fishing, and miles of alpine rambling are the big draws to Lost Lake. An alpine cross-country route to the west leads across miles of tundra, and Mount Ascension attracts mountaineers. Special features: Alpine meadows, tundra rambling, fishing, and one fee cabin near the trail.
