Trail Overview

Headed north off the Christmas Valley Highway to explore. The road goes through some very deep and muddy puddles, through sagebrush, and eventually the East border of the Christmas Valley Sand Dunes. There are many access points to the dunes from the east side. We stayed on the rocky road, and it led into the beautiful Lost Forest. This is a 40-acre ancient stand of Ponderosa Pines. Very cool place out in the middle of nowhere. Many places to get out and explore and for dispersed camping.

Easy to find as it is off the Christmas valley highway about 10-15 miles east of town.
