Superstition Mountain

November 19th 2010

Description

The Camp:
Camp is an easy to get to location.  A few miles down the graded dirt road can be taken on by 2wd vehicles.  Plenty of room for RV and trailers.  Bring wood if you've got it.  The desert is a green and red sticker area so bikes and quads will be present.  Also if you have a bike or quad you are welcome to bring it, it just won't make it on the run.

The Terrain:
Superstition Mountain's terrain is flat desert, sand dunes and rock crawls.  We will touch all types of terrain on both days.

Saturday Run:
The Saturday will be the easier of the two.  Depending on vehicles attending, the days run will rate anywhere from a 3-4.  Please note a tow points are a MUST.

Sunday Run:
I'm reserving the right to drive what ever trail I deem necessary.  Stock vehicles are not recommended but we will find a way to get you through anything.  We will hit 1-2 trails if possible.

Location

Rendezvous @ Trailhead/Campsite

GPS coordinates may change before the run.  I took a guess playing with numbers on google.  It looks close

There are multiple ways to get to Superstition Mountain.  My route from Orange County is:
I-5 south
Hwy 76 East
Hwy 79 North
S-2 East
Hwy 78 East
Hwy 86/76 East (@ Salton Sea)
S-30/Forrester Rd South (Stop sign in Westmorland) (right turn)
Imler Rd (Right turn) (Don't miss it)
Wheeler Rd (Right turn into dirt)

I found this the easiest pull with a trailer.  Other options are the 8 freeway exiting Dunaway Rd (use google) or the 10 to the 86 (use google)
