  • Organized Event: Goat Canyon Trestle 3-13-10

    We will be meeting at Mortero Palms N32 43.215 W116 08.925 at 8:30am on Saturday March 13. We need to leave at 9am to accomplish the hike before the sun sets. Any stock 4wd should be able to get you to the trailhead.

    This is a strenuous hike. Anyone participating should be in good physical shape. 3 miles of boulderhopping with an elevation gain/loss of 1200' each direction.

    I plan on camping Friday & Saturday nights someplace near N3243.312 W116 08.230

    CB Channel 31. Ham radio (2 meter) 146.550

    Some things to bring: quality hiking boots with ankle support, appropriate clothing, sunblock, gloves, water / food (for the hike),first aid kit, flashlight, extra batteries, camera

          This is still on. Forecast is looking good.

          Clear. Lows in the lower 40s to lower 50s. Highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s.

          If it is at all possible I plan on taking Friday off. If not I will be on the road by 1pm. I won't know until Thursday as this is shaping up to be a busy week at work. I will post up as soon as I know what time I expect to be in camp.

          I will be in the F250/camper sans Jeep. I will be heading South on 1-15 all the way to I-8. East to Ocotillo. North on S2 to Dos Hombres Rd and into camp.

              I know it says stock 4wd should be able to make it.
              Friend is asking if stock 2wd Toyota Tundra could make it to the trailhead...he's experienced off road driver, just doesn't want to tow his CJ5 Jeep out there.
              thanks

                I have driven Morteo Wash to the trailhead. It has deep soft sand that I would not take a 2wd into. Dos Hombres Rd also leads to the trailhead. I have never driven Dos Hombres Rd but I have been told that 2wd should not have any trouble.

                      Dos Cabezas Rd not Dos Hombres. Sorry. You will have to turn off Dos Cabezas to get to the trailhead.
