Future Trips

Here we list trips scheduled by the Desert Explorers for the near and distant future. Also listed are some trips that are organized and led by our members but which do not require membership in the Mojave River Valley Museum (MRVM) and are, therefore, not MRVM-sponsored Desert Explorer trips.

Some trips, such as those involving stays at private residences or visits to obscure rock art sites, are posted only in the Desert Explorers' Newsletter. Conversely, some impromptu trips will be posted here and not in the Newsletter.

All trip participants will be required to sign our waiver.

Santa Ana Mountains Tour

April 1,  2017

Leader: Bob Jacoby

CB 13

Who says there is no off roading in Orange County? Join us for an interesting and scenic ridgetop trip across the Santa Ana Mountains. We will follow the Main Divide Road from above Lake Elsinore to Santiago Peak. We will then briefly retrace our steps to exit the mountains on the spectacular Indian Truck Trail.

We are tentatively planning a museum stop and a group dinner once we get back to the flat lands. This should be a very fun day filled with scenery and some interesting, moderately difficult roads. In fact, most of the trip will be easy but there are several very steep places where significant erosion has occurred. As a result, high clearance and four wheel drive will be required.

An Adventure Pass will also be required to go on the trip. This is an absolute requirement of the Cleveland National Forest.
