The newest addition to the Lost Dog trail system, Del Sol Valley is a short loop bounded by neighborhoods and hills.
From the connection to Del Sol Ridge
, following the trail clockwise, Valley descends to cross and follow alongside an uncharacteristically deep arroyo. The turnoff for Desert Forest can be found here, and a fork connects to the northern side of the Lost Dog area via Dead Valentine's Trail
. The trail then crosses the arroyo again and picks up on a wider section of doubletrack running south.
Passing a steep and slippery climb which links to a neighborhood and parking at the trail's southern end, Valley finally makes a challenging but brief ascent back to where it began.
Flora & Fauna
Typical desert vegetation and fauna. Cacti, sotols, ocotillos, creosote bushes and many species of wildflowers. Birds, lizards and rabbits.
