“Hike through hundreds of ocotillos and desert flora on Lost Dog's most lush trail.”— Brendan Ross
From the west side, take a quick right turn off of Del Sol Valley just before reaching the creek bed; as the path cut through the next five miles is new and not visible on satellite maps, you may need the GPS track to help you locate it. Cross and continue east along the creek bed. The higher concentration of rain which collects in this low area contributes to the ocotillos, lechugillas, agave plants, desert grasses and other plant life surrounding the trail.
After climbing a short hill, the trail meanders back and forth, with a few brief forks, until it reaches Mayberry. Connections can be made here to the northern trails via Lechugilla Trail and Brujos, or continue east to the views on Broke Back.
