I'm looking for info about the current conditions within the Carrizo Gorge. I was near the headwaters in Jacumba last weekend, and one of the locals told me that the tamarisk all came back with a vengeance. I know that the route from the top of the gorge out to the Bow Willow area rapidly became overgrown after they took the cattle out, but I heard that efforts had been made to clear out some of the vegetation in the gorge.

Has anybody tried to hike this in the last few years?

The Tamarisk is gone from about Goat Canyon north to the road, they have been working for the last 2 years to clear it. They may be back out now continuing the removal efforts since summer is over. You can easily hike from the Carrizo Gorge road end to Goat Canyon in a couple of hours, the brush is all gone. After that though it can still be very ugly and full of ticks. I was out several times this year and you can find trip reports here or on my website http://www.carrizogorge.com

I was in the Jacumba area a week ago and the creek between Jacumba and the derailed railroad cars was seriously overgrown. I may get into the Gorge in the next week or so. One other thing to look out for.... Apaches. As in Apache helicopters. There were two flying in and around the Gorge when we were out there. I have no idea what they were doing, because we saw them later flying into the Imperial airport.
