West of El Centro on i-8 then north of Ocotillo in the edge of the mountains. I haven't been there since the 60s. My friends have been recently & said it is a technical ride with beautiful scenery. I think it is in the Anza Borrego area.

I was told that it looks like the hills have eyes & there are old cars & trailers around. We will be in the hills above. There also used to be a nudist colony with lots of old geezers, something none of us need to see.

I hope my sarcasm didnt scare anyone away, it really a cool ride and a seasonal trail so its only availble to ride 6 months a year plus Double D is a good guide.

Heres a shitty phone pic from one of the turn outs about two years ago.

Good ride.
