NYLT staff does not organize car pools to Lost Valley.  Look to parents of other scouts in your home unit for possible carpool options. You may be able to contact other parents at the Mandatory Downhill meeting.

Caution! Some GPS navigation systems may attempt to take you to Lost Valley via the Indian Reservation from the Warner Springs side. This road is not maintained, becomes unpassable and you will encounter a locked gate at the Scout Reservation property line. For your safety, please use the Chihuahua Valley Rd route. 

From the Ralphs parking lot, continue on Hyw 79 South past Butterfield Stage Rd for 23 miles.  You will probably lose cell phone service within 5 miles of here as you head into the hills.

Along the way you'll pass Vail Lake, Stagecoach Inn, Aguanga, a stop sign, County Line BBQ, Oak Grove and the historic Butterfield Stage station, an abandoned DVO biker bar, and just around the next bend, the turnoff to Chihuahua Valley Road and the Hawkwatch Winery.

Stay on Chihuahua Valley road for 6 miles. The first part is winding and has a hairpin turn, the latter part on the plateau is straight. Along the way you might see llamas, a camel, and a giant Buddah statue. When the road makes a sharp right, watch for oncoming traffic, but continue straight onto the dirt road which is to the right of the homes.

The dirt road should be about 2 lanes wide and resonably well maintained. You'll see a hippie camp within 1 mile and a few ranches. Watch for the Lost Valley Scout Law mileposts along the way and the Pacific Crest Trail crossing between miles 5 and 6. Watch for 2 way traffic - speed limit is 15 mph for 10 miles.

The GPS coordinates for the Lost Valley mailbox and start of the 10-mile dirt road are: 

Latitude Longitude
N 33 23.086 W 116 39.179
