WTF CARRIZO BADLANDS BIKEPACKING
*This ride is currently full but please fill out the form if you would like to be added to the ride wait list.
Experience the wonders of California’s largest State Park with a like minded group of WTF bikepackers! We are excited to share this new route we’ve been developing with all of you.
This route goes through the Pinyon Mountain Valley and Carrizo Badland regions of Anza Borrego Desert State Park in the Colorado Desert. Get ready for a rich variety of geological wonders as this route winds through ancient sea beds and carved canyons. Some highlights include Pinyon Mountain, Hahapa Flats, Sandstone Canyon, Arroyo Tapiado Mud Caves, and Canyon Sin Nombre.
We want to acknowledge that we will be riding through the traditional territories of the Kumeyaay and Cocopah peoples.
This is an intermediate 2 night 3 day bikepacking route. There is no water once we leave the main road. Riders must carry all their water (10-12 Litters) and pack everything out. Camping is dispersed with no amenities. We
recommend 2.2 or largers tires to navigate the sand and rocks. Rigid or hardtail MTBs with tubeless tires are ideal. Previous experience bikepacking or mountain biking is suggested. This is not a route for beginners. Route is 40% paved, 60% dirt and 1% hike a bike. Day 1 is the most elevation and most pavement but least technical riding with almost 4000 ft of elevation climbing up and over box canyon.
There is no sag or support on this ride. Riders will need to carry their own camp supplies ( food, water, and shelter). All food and water will have to be packed in and packed out. Be prepared for day time highs in mid 70s - 80s and nighttime lows in the 40’s.
