Day Hike in ‘Montana’s Niagra’

Updated May, 2020: Lost Lake was previously open to the public by the generosity of the landowner, however, misuse and abuse has caused the location to close to the public.

Lost Lake is a hidden gem that begs to be discovered. Nestled between Great falls and Fort Benton in the Highwood mountains, Lost Lake has to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. The views alone are worth the trip, but while you’re here, enjoy a day hike in this remote pocket of Montana. Wander through an ethereal prairie dotted with boulders, you’ll arrive at the precipitous dry falls. Peek over the ledge, 300 feet down, at the small, reflective lake and marvel at land that was once part of the ice age.
