Corral Canyon / Jacumba Mountains Wheelin' & Camping
Jan. 15 & 16th, 2011


I'll be camping out at Corral Canyon OHV Area (Bobcat Meadow Campground) over the third weekend in January, rain or shine. I'll probably head out late Friday night after work. On Saturday I plan on running most of the trails around Corral Canyon as well as Pancake Rock, just down the highway. On Sunday, I'd like to head out early to run the trails around the Jacumba and In-Ko-Pah Mountains- Elliot Mine, Table Mountain, etc. These areas provide trails from easy to very difficult, so there's something for everyone. I'll also be meeting up with a few Jeeps from Arizona to show them around the area.

Camping at Corral Canyon requires a National Forest Adventure Pass, which can be purchased at these locations:

Alpine Chevron
1145 Tavern Rd
Alpine, CA 91901-3817
619-445-5260

Descanso Ranger District
3348 Alpine Blvd
Alpine, CA 91901
619-4456235

As the date gets closer I'll post up more details. If anyone's interested in camping or just coming out for a day post up! :D

Posting to follow and perhaps join.

In the middle of a business deal, but if it closes on the 11th, I'll need some relaxation time!!

As it stands right now, my son and I will be there. Looks like this might be my first camping trip since BorregoFest. I need a good outdoor fix. I've never been to Corral Canyon. Which trails are you wanting to run at Corral Canyon?

That's great if you guys can make it. Lots of rock crawling opportunities at Corral Canyon.

As for trails there I plan on running all but the most difficult one, Bronco Peak Connector. There's also Los Pinos Mtn. Trail, Sidewinder, Bronco Peak, Gunslinger, and a newly opened trail that I think isn't named yet. Some folks from Arizona will also be meeting up with us in their Cherokee.

Of course, Pancake Rock is also on the list, as well as Elliot Mine, Table Mountain to Carrizo Gorge overlook, and the old Mountain Springs Stagecoach Trail.

Sidewinder is a great trail, the Bronco Peak connector is really wild.
