‘Hot Dogs for Lost Dog’ cookout raises money to help save beloved trail

Community

Local cyclists hit the pavement and fired up the grill Saturday morning to save a popular Northwest El Paso trail.

Land preservationists hosted a “Hot Dogs for Lost Dog” cookout and raised more than $450 to spare the Lost Dog Trail from developed into a retail and residential space.

Organizers say the money will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Save Lost Dog Foundation to help preserve the beloved hiking and biking trail.

“You can hike, you can bike, you can run, you can do a lot of different things back here,” bicyclist Ivan Barrios told KTSM, “and it’s a good idea to keep it and to maintain it for (the) next generations.”

The community can decide whether or not to develop the area by voting in a special election happening May 4.
