Trail Information


Overlapping San Diego and Imperial Counties nestled between Anza Borrego Desert State Park and the Salton Sea is the Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreation Area; an 85,000-acre playground for off-road enthusiasts. Some of the popular attractions in the park are Truckhaven, the 4x4 Training Area, the Badlands, Pumpkin Patch, Shell Reef, Devil's Slide, and Blowsand Hill among many others. Gettysburg is an enjoyable short trail and is a nice complement to Tectonic Gorge with similar features and terrain. After finishing Tectonic Gorge at the west end, jump onto Gettysburg and head east. With the sun at your back, cruise through the open desert, descend into the gorge, and weave through the canyon for more off-road fun and beautiful scenery!
