Highlights

Highlight: Vodkaberry
Deep in the mountains of Calico lies trails rarely touched. This short, but fun 4x4 trail offers off-roaders something that is rarely traveled and challenging. Comprised of a couple obstacles, Vodkaberry's main attraction is a double waterfall with the upper fall comprised of a 6 foot ledge. If you have the skill, this can be a fun trip when cutting across between Doran Canyon and Wall Street.

Directions to Trailhead

Starting Point: Yermo, CA

The trail is between Wall Street and Doran Canyon back in the hills of Calico. One way to get to the trail is to head out from Doran Canyons Bismark Mine (Bismark Hair Piece Trail ). The trail heads north around the mine, once you get on the other side of Doran Canyon stay to the south. It is roughly .6 miles of travel from The Bismarck Mine. Or you can come from Wall Street Canyon side, this way has multiple options, the most direct route is to take the southern most canyon (Bismarks Mullet) to the east from Wall Street Canyon above The Wall, please not this is a difficult path but puts you right at the trail head in 0.2 miles. From there the trail heads north.

Josh Noesser

Mapping Crew - California

Joshua Noesser grew up in Southern California but has lived in different parts of the country during his young adult life. Josh was first turned to four wheeling when he road with one of his friends dad up Surprise Canyon in the Panamint Valley at age14. After nearly 3 different roll overs later and a half dozen intense waterfalls, Josh was hooked. At 16 he purchased his first Jeep a CJ 7 and by 17 was putting his first locker in it. Currently, Josh is the owner and CEO of Nybble, an IT Solutions Company based in Orange County, California. Nybble isn't your normal IT company where everyone stays in and plays video games. Nybble's average company trip is out on the trails since a good amount of his staff enjoy wheeling too. As Josh likes to say, he offers the only IT Company with the ability to provide services in extreme locations. "If you want a server at the top of The Hammers, we will take care of that for you." Today you can find Josh out on the trail behind the wheel in one of his three different off-road vehicles. See the vehicles below for more information. If you ever run into Josh, please say high, he is a very friendly person and is always happy to have a new person join the group.
