Hi everybody. I am planning on taking advantage of the great weather this weekend by running a loop that I've thought about for years. The plan is to run from Sacatone Overlook to the trestle, to Dos Cabezas Spring, to Jacumba Mtn, down (north) the Jacumba Mtn spine, and back to car. If anybody has any recent knowledge of the flow at Dos Cabezas Spring, it would be greatly appreciated. Although I have never seen this spring dry, the condition of other water sources I've been to over the last couple of months has me quite concerned. If it's dry...Borrego Days-here I come!

No idea on spring level but I have seen normally wet areas this year completely dry so plan accordingly. I have hiked sacatone to goat cyn a few times, I can't really think where you will be "running", and about a 3'k elevation gain/loss. Be sure to report back!

Thanks for the quick reply. I'll be running the 7,892 little 20ft stretches between rock scrambles haha. If the spring is dry, I plan on skipping the Jacumba Mtn range portion & beelining it back to the vehicle. This drought has begun to reach deep underground, the adobe under my yard in Normal Heights has shrunk over 3" below the sidewalk! I'm busy as heck Sat night & Sunday, so I may not be able to post anything til next week but I will.
