Truckhaven (Arroyo Wash, Calcite Mine, Palm Wash and Truckhaven Trail) 01/20/07
Our plan was to attend CORVA's Truckhaven Challenge but it seems that along
transfer of the Truckhaven area to Anza Borrego State Park comes law suits that
shut down the event! We found out when we arrived to check in in the morning!
So, we had
to find something to do and remembered a wash with striped walls we'd mistakenly
up in during Tierra del Sol and we had some GPS from last year's event. Off we
We did find a way to go from Truckhaven Hills to Calcite Mine (all wash). We
went up to the
mine and hiked around a bit! We found our striped wash, which turns out to
North Fork of the Arroyo Wash and we found the previously closed Truckhaven
open from near the Calcite Mine to Arroyo Salado! Mostly easy
desert wheeling but a beautiful area!
