I'll be heading out to the desert in October for the BorregoFest event hosted by Outdoor Adventure USA. They will also be offering Amateur Radio License testing on Sunday for all levels from 10:00 AM to noon. Camp will be located at the Butterfield Ranch Resort, located just outside the Park boundary. The Ranch is equipped with full hookups for RVs, plenty of tent camping, showers, and a well stocked store. For more information on all of the events, including, 4x4 trail runs, camp directions, Ham Radio testing and to sign up, click here: http://forums.oausa.net/viewforum.php?f=193

On Saturday I'll be leading a run up Carrizo Mountain and then through the southern area of the Park.

BorregoWrangler,

Looks like a good time.

Is the road up to Carrizo Mountain something I could get my rig up to?

Well, I have lead few full-sized rigs up there, such as Suburbans. The trail gets a bit narrow in places so your camper might be a concern.

Nolan, I've driven my Tundra to the top and think it might be a tight squeeze through Painted Gorge with your rig. There's also a few tight rough corners on your way up once out of the gorge. Great views and camping if you can make it. Definitely a 4x4 route. Tom

Thanks for the heads up. Is it street legal vehicles only up there or could I drive a yamaha rhino up there to scout it out?

As best as I can tell from looking at the BLM WECO map, there's "open" routes to Painted Gorge and "limited" routes inside the gorge and on top of Carrizo which in this case specifically refer to the six month closure not vehicle type. So, you should be good. Tom
