“A one mile access road offers alternative access to the Lost Dog area trails.”
— Mikhaila Redovian
This access road, closed to regular traffic, connects the end of Helen of Troy to the water tank intersection at Lechugilla. It is wide, flat, dirt, and unremarkable, but is usually free of other trail users and is a connection to the "backup parking" for the Lost Dog
trails at the end of Helen of Troy for the rare occasion when the trailhead lot is full.
