Superstition to Julian

Event details

This route is from the little town of Ocotillo through Coyote Wells to the Centenilla Prison, then up thru the sand dunes of Superstition mountain, after taking in views of Salton Sea I'll be traveling west through the Silt Beds and washes toward Fish Creek and The Great Overland Stage Route The pass up Mnt Laguna will be via Oriflamme Canyon. There wil be a re-fueling station in Julian where I plan to stop in town for BBQ brisket at the Julian Beer Co.

There's a return route that travels thru the California National Forest on dirt roads that arent maintained. There is a section where the rider will have to duck down and ride under trees in a single track section and traverse over a recent rock slide from the side of a cliff. Along this route route will be what's left of old wagons left out in the wilderness to explore and study. The route then follows several sand washes though the Yuha Desert back toward Ocotillo Chevron.

3300 ft elevation change on the ride can cause temp changes so plz dress in light layers if you decide to tag along on this old time discovery route through East San Diego County Mountain Region and California Desert District.

The route is classified as level 3 (difficult) due to 150 miles of steep 1:1 slope, rocky landslides, creek crossings , deep powdery sand, silt beds and beautiful yet harmful flora if touched. 90/10 off-road/slab.

I can meet at the staging area by Chevron in Ocotillo at 845  for fuel. ksu 9am  estimated return time 330 pm.
