Deep in the deserts of Southern California lies a trail that few of heard of but all of them wish they had the opportunity to drive. Devils Canyon outside of Ocotillo and near San Diego, California is a life changer for most off-road enthusiasts. Full of some of the most intense rock crawling, this permit-required trail can easily be one of the legends. For many, this trail is simply just too hard. Others are forced to turn around in defeat. But for those lucky few, this is a trail of a lifetime and will likely be one of your favorite trails of all time. Full of technical obstacles, this epic 4x4 trail will be testing both man and machine to their limits. What keeps this trail as a unicorn of the off-road community is that it is only available one to two days a month at the max. So, if you think you're up for it, get your information below, gather a group, and attempt one of the most legendary trails the SoCal desert has to offer the off-roading community, Devils Canyon.
