Carrizo Gorge Wilderness
Carrizo Gorge Wilderness is located between McCain Valley BLM, the Jacumba Wilderness and extreme southwestern Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in California. Located in this wilderness is Goat Canyon Trestle, a 180 foot high railroad bridge over a deep gorge requiring a 15 mile hike on railroad tracks that passes through tunnels along the way. Bighorn Sheep frequent the location, and there are several groves of native California Fan Palms. It is accessed by a dirt road in a very remote area with no cellphone service of any kind. This area gets extremely hot in summer. Late winter and early spring is the best time to go for wildflowers.
