Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Through Dog Canyon, take the Indian Meadows Nature Loop for a half mile and then hike up to Lost Peak for 6.4 miles.
  • The Lost Peak hike is strenous with an elevation gain of 1,500 feet, but worth it for the outstanding views.
  • Another hike out of Dog Canyon is to the Marcus Overlook on a 4.5-mile trail by following the Bush Mountain Trail for 2.3 miles to the ridge of West Dog Canyon.
