Carrizo Gorge Mountain Bike Ride

A little while ago my wife any myself felt the need to get out of town one morning and as a last second decision we headed to Carrizo Gorge. This is a quite unknown, very desolate, quite illegal, and very spectacular place. This ride was along the “Impossible Railroad” east of San Diego in the Anzo Borrego desert. It starts in Jacumba up on the mountain and goes to Ocotillo Wells at the desert floor with a very mellow and consistent gradient the whole way. It’s about 8 miles long. This stretch of railroad is famous for having the most wooden trestles, the most tunnels, and the largest curved wood trestle.
