This will be a one day trip to The Squeeze and Heartattack Hill in Ansa-Borrego. We will continue through Fish Creek Wash, explore the Wind Caves and exit through Split Mountain. The Squeeze is tight for larger vehicles(JKs). Side body damage is possible. Heartattack Hill is a very steep descent.
We will leave from Carl's Jr at 0730
Gas up in Ramona about 0830. We have left tow vehicles at what use to be the Sizzler in the past. If you are thinking about leaving a vehicle there you might want to check with the restaurant.
I expect to be at the trailhead (33 03' 24.83"N 116 25' 17.35"W) about 0930
We will stop somewhere in Fish Creek wash for lunch. Bring a chair and something to eat.
Hopefully there will be enough time to explore the Wind Caves. This will include a 1.5 mile hike so bring some walking shoes. It should be a pretty easy hike. Those that are not interesred in the Wind Caves can continue through Split Mountain and exit via Split Mountain Road to Ocotillo Wells.
I will cancel this trip if there is rain forecasted
No need to experience a flash flood first hand
