Calico: Doran Off-Road Trail

On Thanksgiving weekend (2018) we led a small group of Jeeps up Doran Road in the Calico Mountains. ¬†The original plan was to go up Doran to Bismark mine for lunch, then head over to the difficult section of Wall Street and go down to the Wall Street Overlook, then backtrack back out and back down Doran. ¬†Instead, after coming up Doran to the Bismark mine we went out Tin Can Alley to look at a new trail, dubbed “Notarubicon Trail“, then we went out via Phillips Rd via Kramer’s Arch.

Here are some photos from the day, in no particular order:

    What an amazing trip this was. Adventure, excitement, pucker factors and most of all the encouragement and support amongst family and friends. You can’t ask for more than that!
