Jacumba Hikers: Indian Gorge Rd. to Secret Cave & Beyond

Hike Leader: Mike Rood

This hike is a challenging adventure that begins and ends on a steep, narrow trail, but most of this strenuous, extremely rugged hike requires climbing up and down boulders off-trail. We will also pick our way through areas over-grown with brush, but the reward is a rarely found cave hidden in the rocks! From there, we may even venture up to Sombrero Peak if the group is willing and able! Leaves from IVDM parking lot at 8:00 AM. We will carpool or caravan to the trailhead in high-clearance/4-wheel drive vehicles.

Please Note: While we do our best to accurately describe the hikes and their difficulty levels, please know your own limits and capabilities! A hike that is easy or moderate for some may be difficult or extreme for other depending on hiking experience, skill level, and physical capabilities. Also, please be prepared! Hiking shoes with good traction, 2-3 liters of water, and a backpack to carry your water, snacks, and gear are essential items on these challenging hikes. Hiking/Trekking poles are also helpful for some.
