Overview

Odessa Canyon is the flagship of the off-road trails in the Calico area near Barstow, California. Comprised of many hard obstacles with no bypasses, this extreme 4x4 jeep trail makes you earn your trip to the top. Odessa also provides some of the best views in the area. But be ready. This trail has a 7-foot waterfall, an extremely narrow rollover spot that you just have to see to believe, and a super tight off-camber canyon in it. With all these challenges, don't be surprised if the trail wreaks havoc on your vehicle.
