About the event

Diamond lake is undeniably one of the gems of the Cascade Mountains. Nestled between the dramatic volcanoes of Thielsen and Bailey, the area hosts countless trail systems, natural springs (people come from all over to fill their jugs from Silent Spring!) and warm-ish water!  This venue played host to the 2022 America’s Toughest Race, and is one of the best kept adventure secrets in Oregon!  Limited rental boats are available onsite through Diamond Lake Lodge, as well as cabins and rooms if you want to bring the family for a proper and beautiful vacation. And then... if you brought the family, stay and do the famliy race the next day!
