Anzo-Borrego/Ocotillo Wells 8/9 Feb.

Going down to AB State Park this weekend for some camping, hiking, scenic photos and wheeling of course. Want to hit up trails in Ocotillo Wells while I am at it. It will be the first time with wheeling the LJ. Should be fun. Any recomandations? places to avoid? or best trails to see and do? And if you want to join come on down!

Truckhaven and Ocotillo Wells are great for being able to choose your own trails and try what you feel comfortable with out. The Calcite Mine trail is a great trail with a very small challenge but is very capable to do in a stock Jeep. I have had stock Toyota trucks up that trail. Coyote Canyon is also great but in recent years they have torn down the two areas that were fun so it is now a scenic trail. There is also Fish Creek/Sandstone Canyon...

I guess it all depends on the kind of wheeling you want, what you feel comfortable with, and where you are in the park. Depending on where you are, all these cool places could be as much as 30 mins away by road. If you need any help ill be watching the thread

Awesome! Those are all awesome recommendations. I was looking to do a scenic, a moderate wheeling and try some obstacles in truck haven, plus try some speed. Camp at night in the middle of the desert is something I really want to do and take some nice photos. It's a lot to do in 2 days but I think it's possible. I saw photos of fish canyon in dirtopia.com. It looked like exactly what I was looking for. It's the first taking the jeep out. It's not stock but I'm going to test out how comfortable I feel in it. What else? Hmm I can't wait lol. I'm like a little kid.

We were in the A-B state park last week on The Dropoff. It was our first trip through it (it's a one way), and we really enjoyed the trip. From the view above The Slot, to the short downhill canyon crawl, this was a great 1/2 day run from near the Borrego Springs airport. We did it alone, but in retrospect, I'd prefer to head down that hill and into the canyon with another vehicle... just in case.

You might want to check out Military Wash on the west end of OW. History has it that Patton used the area to train troops for desert operations. You can still find lots of brass casings on the ground

Thanks

Those pics look awesome. I can't wait to go. Yeah I will probably wait to have someone else to do that one.

Heading out to Canyon Sin Nombre this weekend...not very difficult, but very interesting with the rock formations. Our small group is gonna have a geologist along to do the explainin' - should be about 4 hours and very interesting...
Another one of my favorites is the Jasper Trail starting at the Grapevine and ending up near Ranchita, has a little bit of everything - side hikes, some semi-difficult spots and views to die for.....
