From the Meeting Place we will drive a few miles on the highway before airing down at the Trailhead.
Please arrive in time to fuel up for a full day of 4 wheeling.
This is mostly a “Scenic Run” but for Novice Drivers or those afraid of heights it could present some challenges. I haven’t been there since some recent heavy rains in the area so we may have to do a bit of trail clearing.
We will start by doing the Border Trails. We’ll stop first at Smuggler’s Cave then continue to the Elliot Mine, spending some time at each. Then we will continue south to the border before crossing under Interstate 8 via Mica Gem Rd then to the ruins of the Mt. Springs Stage Station. It will likely be warm so bring sun screen and plenty of water.
RSVP Not Required.
