Trail Information


As you venture down the Truckhaven Trail you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Salton Sea to the East, a look into Ocotillo Wells SVRA to the South, and Truckhaven Hills to the North. The best thing about Truckhaven Trail is that it offers routes into each of these areas. With just a short drive to the North you will end up in Truckhaven Hills, a favorite among familes and rock crawlers alike, or head South and hit the 4x4 park in Ocotillo Wells or venture out and discover all of the landmarks Ocotillo Wells offers. During the colder desert months and holiday weekends this area is crawling with off-road enthusiasts as it offers just about every level of difficulty you can ask for.

Easy trail, cuts straight across the hilltops into town and has several sections of other trails crisscrossing it if you want to venture off. It is a fun alternative way into town. The trail head sign was down and missing from the road though, so just follow the directions on here or through google maps.
