Lost Wash 4.0

Location: Southwest of Quartzsite on Old Yuma Road.

Length in miles or time to complete: Lost Wash trail – 11 miles, about 2 hrs; alternate return – 8 ½ miles, 1 hr.

Trail Description: Lost Wash is a short difficult trail close to a camping area. It demands your full attention as the obstacles keep on coming at you and getting more interesting. There are rocks to go over, trees to go around and narrow places to navigate. Near the end there is a smaller wash to the left which eliminates the “squeeze” and the rock climb out. It still is difficult and you have to be careful not to cut a tire or get high centered. There is an alternate way back to where you started.
