First time exploring the McDowells from the 1124th St./Lost Dog trailhead. Scenery is a little on the ho-hum side. I was hoping that the quartz trail would have some destination excitement, but the turnaround point is fairly random.

All in all, this area would be nice for doing trail runs or some moderate mountain biking. Next time I’m back in this area, I will probably head up in the Sunrise Peak direction instead.

The trailhead officially opens at 6:17 a.m. (very precise, apparently). I arrived a little before that and just parked in the elementary school parking lot just down the street instead.
