Opal Mountain & Inscription Canyon

May 18, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

Free

UPDATE: FRIDAY 6:15PM – We are GO for Saturday morning, rain or shine, with no changes to the original plan (outlined below)

This will be an easy off-road run from near the town of Hinkley to Opal Mountain, “Little Inscription Canyon” and “Inscription Canyon” in the heart of Black Mountain Wilderness area.   We will make stops at Little Inscription Canyon and Inscription Canyon to see the ancient Native American petroglyphs – both require walking/a short hike to reach.

This is an easy run – just perfect for beginners, and no problem for any stock 4×4 vehicle. We will encounter sandy washes, a few hill-climbs and possible mud/water crossings.

A few notes about this run:

  • Check back here Saturday morning before you leave for any updates.
  • Check the weather for Hinkley, CA and be sure to dress appropriately.
  • Bring plenty of food, water, and snacks. It will be a long day.
  • Pets are welcome but for the safety of your animal and others, please maintain full control of your animal at all times.
  • Drinking on the trail is frowned upon and his very highly discouraged
  • There are NO BATHROOMS along this entire route. We will have to make due with bushes and rocks.

REQUIREMENTS AND DETAILS:

  • Any stock 4×4 Jeep or truck with a spare tire and recovery points
  • A full tank of fuel (Please fuel-up at the meetup location)
  • CB Radio (optional, but recommended)
  • A sense of fun and adventure!

MEETUP INFO:

We will meet at the Arco at 16251 D St, Victorville, CA at 9AM and will depart shortly after.
Be sure to arrive early enough to fuel-up, use the rest room, etc.

    Hi Randy, we’d love to tag along but we would have to leave around 1:30pm. Is it easy to find a way out half way through?

      I would say no. Where we’re going is miles from anything – you would probably have to turn around before we even get to the first stop.

      Looks like only about 20 Jeeps so far.. Should be a nice, manageable-sized group!

    Hello Randy:
    I don’t have CB but use HAM. Do you also use HAM Radio?
    Also, I see on the map that it’s about 25 miles to Opal Man from Hinkley. Will it take around 2 hours to get there or longer?

      We us CB only..
      It’s only about 14 miles, straight line from the heart of Hinkely to Opal Mountain, but with a group of this size it will take 1-2 hours.

        Gotcha! I’ll just follow then.

        Do we take the same route heading back or is it going to be a loop?

        1. Randy says:

          This run is a loop – we may take a slightly different way out for the last mile or two, but we end up at the same place we started.
