Trail Overview

This out and back trail begins with an awe inspiring view of the US border. There are places to stop and take a quick pic before continuing on the trail. Majority of this trail is rocky terrain and it can be narrow for the first 4.5 miles. The first obstacle you come upon is known as "Axle Breaker" and is a moderately steep rock crawl, high clearance is required. Front and/or rear lockers highly recommended but not required, with proper tire placement and a spotter it can be conquered. After this obstacle, the remainder of the trail is moderate with beautiful views of the Jacumba Wilderness. The end of this trail offers an amazing spot to picnic and take in the scenery of the Valley of the Moon. There are several caves and rock formations to explore AT YOUR OWN RISK. There is also an optional obstacle course adjacent to the Valley of the Moon that has something for all skill levels. Bring plenty of water, snacks, recovery gear, and a radio. This is a remote area so being prepared is vital.
